The Concept2 SkiErg offers a full-body
low-impact workout based on the sport of Nordic skiing. Proper technique can help
you get the most out of your workout. Start with your feet shoulder-width
apart, approximately 18 to 24 inches from the flywheel. The arms are bent at 90
degrees, slightly above eye level. The drive is initiated by engaging the core. Drive the handles downward by hinging at the hips before bending your knees. After each pull, the knees are bent and
arms are extended along your hips. The thumbs are aiming for the thighs. Wrists do not bend. The arms will not fully extend. From this position, stand up and elevate your arms for the next pull. You may come up on your toes at the start of each pull.
The goal is to create a smooth, fluid, continuous motion. For a classic skiing technique, alternate arm pulls. Keep some bend in the pulling arm for a
stronger position. A seated position isolates the upper body and core for an alternative workout. This can be a great workout for adaptive athletes, or those recovering from lower body injuries. The versatile SkiErg makes the tough
workout of Nordic skiing available to everyone..
