Using the Concept2 SkiErg to up your Strength and Endurance GameREBEL Marketing
The innovative Concept2 SkiErg is a special piece of endurance equipment that makes the sport of Nordic Skiing accessible to everyone. You might be wondering, why train to ski in Africa?
Nordic or cross-country skiing is one of the most effective and efficient kinds of exercise, especially for developing stamina and endurance. It has the advantage of being a low-impact sport while still being just as strenuous as other forms of demanding exercise. Just because snow is not an option, doesn’t mean that skiing for exercise is out of reach.
Enter the Concept2 SkiErg
This ground-breaking machine is designed to mimic cross-country skiing’s ‘poling’ action. The Concept2 SKiErg is not only valuable to skiers in the off-season, but it is widely utilised as a tool for cardiovascular and strength endurance training in gyms, health clubs, and households all over the world.
Why use the Concept2 SkiErg?
This unique machine can be used by all types of sports men and women including swimmers, rowers and those looking to up their strength and conditioning game indoors. It can also be easily adapted for people who have lower body injuries or limitations because it can provide a full cardiovascular workout from seated position using a chair, or wheelchair.
Because of its distinctive lower and upper body movement patterns, it is a favourite among trainers. The machine’s primary muscle groups of focus are the arms and core, yet when used to its full potential, your legs and back muscles will also be engaged. The SkiErg checks a lot of boxes. You can use it as a warm-up to a tough lifting session while raising your heart rate. Alternatively, it can also be the main stimulus to burn calories and fill your cardio quota for the day.
What you can achieve using the Concept2 SkiErg
The Concept2 SkiErg can be used in any combination of four modes: the two-arm pull, one-arm pull, standing or sitting. The two-arm pull will result in the most intensive workout, involving larger muscle groups and increased aerobic demand but the classic alternating motion of the one-armed pull uses a slightly different and smaller set of muscles.
This Concept2 SkiErg is highly adaptable. When using the two-arm pull technique, each pull engages the arms, shoulders, core and legs. The SkiErg can be used in a legs-stationary stance or from a seated position, targeting upper-body muscle areas for those who choose to focus solely on the upper body or who have leg injuries or lower body limitations.
Because the Concept2 SkiErg employs the same flywheel principle as the Concept2 RowErg and Concept2 BikeErg, resistance can be varied to suit the individual. The wide range of intensity levels and modes, make it an ideal form of adaptive training for people looking to improve their fitness level or those undergoing rehab for an injury.
Concept2’s SkiErg boasts a performance monitor that allows you to accurately assess your output, keep track of your development, and compare your performance against others. With its Bluetooth and ANT+ wireless connectivity you can connect to almost any type of heart rate belt, fitness device or app to track your workout.
The SkiErg will help you reach your goals whether you’re an expert cross-country skier wishing to hit the slopes, a gym fundi wanting to get in shape for summer, or just someone looking for a good way to exercise.
