5 workouts for xc skiers – Explore Magazine

Nordic skiing, whether classic or skate, is one of the few activities that works both the upper and lower body, pulling and pushing every major muscle and most of the small ones too.

With so much going on, cross-country skiing cranks the heart and respiration rates, exactly what the heart and lungs need to become strong and healthy, and burns more calories than just about any other sport—up to 1,000 per hour. No surprise, it can leave you pooped quickly.

Avoid burning out on day-one by building a solid base, says Andrea Stapff, a former national team rower and the coach of the Strathcona Nordics cross-country ski team. “The biggest mistake I see is the weekend warrior who goes hard every time they work out,” she says. “Nothing advantageous to performance is happening when you do that.” Instead, she has her skiers do lots of long, slow mileage and intense intervals and strength and balance work. Together, they build the fitness to glide on skinny skis for hours and still have the power and lungs to chug up the brutal hill back to the lodge.
