My Total Skiing Fitness Ski Fitness Training Program Review

Highly Recommended

I usually find books written on this category hard to understand and full of jargon. But the author was capable of presenting advanced techniques in an extremely easy to understand language.

All the modules inside this ebook are very detailed and explanatory, there is nothing as comprehensive as this guide.

Not consider plyometrics training

A plyometrics program for the special operations community should incorporate those types of movements (i.e., linear, vertical, lateral, or a combination) required for operational performance. For example, downhill skiing would require diagonal movements, close-quarters battle (CQB) would require horizontal, vertical, and diagonal movements.

Winter Warfare Training

Winter warfare imposes some specific physical training demands on SEALs. During training and deployment, winter warfare operations challenge an individual's skill in protection from environmental factors and ability to move efficiently over snow and ice. Thus, cross country skiing is recommended for those involved in winter warfare operations. This section reviews training issues specific to the winter warfare mission. A high skill level is essential if use of skis is contemplated. Under most operational conditions, cross country skiing provides the highest degree of non-mechanized mobility for travelling over snow and ice. Skiing becomes a very efficient form of man-powered transportation during long transits over flat terrain. However, the advantages of skiing only become apparent after acquisition of specific skills and fitness. The overall fitness level of SEALs may be adequate for cross country skiing because fitness from running and aquatic training carry over to skiing....

Outdoor Activities

Cross-Country Skiing Cross-Country Skiing Although cross country skiing is discussed in detail under winter warfare below, it should be noted that this is an excellent method of training for cardiorespiratory fitness. It engages almost all of the major muscle groups and thus, the overall energy expenditure may be as high or higher than when moving the body over the same distance on foot. Importantly, the intensity of the effort varies greatly as a function of the terrain climbing uphill requires tremendous effort whereas going downhill represents a light load. High caliber cross-country skiers have some of the highest maximal oxygen uptakes ever recorded (see Chapter 2). However, the appropriate equipment and environment are necessary for cross-country skiing.

METs and Watts

No doubt new modes of exercise will be appearing in the future. What you chose to use will depend on many factors. The important issue is whether you arc able to achieve the desired work rate and conditioning level. A recent study of indoor exercise machines examined energy expenditure at given ratings of perceived exertion. They compared a treadmill, a rowing crgomctcr, a combination cycle arm ergomcter, a cycle ergomcter, a stairstepper and a cross-country skiing simulator. Surprisingly they found that rates of energy expenditure varied by as much as 261 kcal hour for the exercisc machines when subjects exercised at self-selectcd work rates corresponding to fairly light, somewhat hard, and hard. The treadmill came out with the greatest energy expenditures, followed by the rowing and stairstepping ergometers the cycle and combination cycle arm ergomctcrs came out with the lowest values. If exercise intensity is established by perceived effort, treadmill running walking will result in...
