I use my SkiErg every week as a preparation for the Vasaloppet. I usually do intervals, such as 5 times 1000 metres, but I also do some distance training of up to 1 1/2 hours. I like the SkiErg because it is great exercise for both strength and endurance and is more gentle on your body compared to rollerskiing. Lastly, it’s fun to race against yourself and against friends!
Editor’s note: Erik finished 52nd in the 2011 Vasaloppet. The Vasaloppet is an annual 90km race with over 16,000 competitors!
