Training Plans?

Post by jrwill228 » September 13th, 2019, 10:26 am

Been looking on the net and various places. Not new to rowing but new to SkiErg. Looking for a training plan to use for both rowing and Ski combined. It's amazing how little there is out there and most of it is actually someone trying to sell you a subscription to their site.

Anyone got any ideas or a plan they currently use to incorporate both machines for a beginner level?

Thanks

Do not excist for free.

But you can use rowing plans, its not that different.
You need to find you drag and rating though, those are different from rowing.

Start by brushing up your technique, reaching an average of about 5k a day (rowing) at low ratings.
If you want to race, you'll need to do some fast work too.
According to age and sex, you should soon be able to work at 2 to 3W/kg, using a hypothetical fit weight if necessary.

Personally I alternate sets (usually 3 each) on the SE and BE (which is new to me).
You can do the same workouts whether skiing, cycling, running, or any other type of aerobic activity.

The same sequence applies, with variations over time and length of sets, warm up, do a workout, warm down.
For example if you're training for a 2k, do repetitions at your 2k goal pace, with appropriate recoveries in between.

You can choose to do any workout that you want, change it any time that you want, and you don't have to pay anyone.

I use both. I do about 2/3 rower 1/3 skierg meters per week. Tomorrow I'll actually be doing 5 2Ks starting with the skierg and alternating with the rower since I did 45 minutes on the rower today.

I like to do alternating intervals of various distances it provides a great total body workout.
