Finish Your Workout on the Concept2 SkiErg
Nordic skiing is an exhilarating and aerobically demanding sport, so it’s no surprise that Nordic skiers are extremely fit athletes. The SkiErg makes this terrific aerobic exercise accessible to anyone. Each pull engages the arms, shoulders, core and legs in a downwards “crunch,” using body weight to help accelerate the handles. Check the technique video and you’ll see the legs raising the body weight on each stroke, providing an exhausting full-body workout at high intensities.
A workout on the SkiErg works the legs at least as hard as the upper body. Maximum heart rates are achieved through aerobically demanding workouts. At Powerhouse Fitness we use the ski erg periodically in order to develop a non-stop heart pumping high calorie burning workout. The ski erg maximizes your training to get you to your fitness goals sooner by utilizing high intensity interval training. The (H.I.I.T.) high intensity interval training workouts between the rowing machine and the ski erg in any given class will give you the most efficient fat burning workout guaranteed!
