Trainer Max McManus tailors David's workouts specifically for pipe skiing, what he refers to as "functional training." This includes training each leg individually and constantly changing David's exercises so that his muscles learn to react to the unexpected variables that can arise when launching 24 feet out of a 22-foot pipe.
