Cardio Equipment - SkiErg

Eric Steltenpohl


How To

To start- Hands shoulder width apart just above eye level. Arms bent at 90 degrees.  Feet shoulder width apart.

Drive the handles downward, engaging your core, bending the knees, maintain the bent position of the arms.  

Finish the movement with knees bent and arms extended back along your thighs. Bring the arms back up, straightening the body to the starting position.

You can make the movement more oblique specific + single arm strength specific by alternating pulls with each arm.  The double pull engages more of your body and will give you a better overall workout. If you are new to the SkiErg, start with the double pull technique.   

The Damper Setting

The damper setting is the same as the rower.  Refer to the rowing tutorial to understand the 1-10 setting.  

Stroke Rate

The number in the top right corner of the display is your Strokes Per Minute.  This is your cadence. Stroke rate is different from the rower. An 18 s/m on the rower = ~30 s/m on the SkiErg.
