Cross Country Ski Machine Workouts

Ski machines simulate the movement of cross-country skiing in the comfort of our own home or the gym. A cross country skiing machine works the upper and lower body at the same time, for optimal cardiovascular benefits to increase the amount of calories burned. It is possible to raise the intensity of a ski workout as you become more fit and lean - just as you might do by real cross-country skiing.

How Many Calories Do Ski Machines Burn?

30 minutes on a cross-country ski machine burns about 250-350 calories. [This is based on a 150-pound woman. If you weigh more, you’ll burn extra calories; if you weigh less, you’ll burn fewer calories.]

How Do Ski Machines Help Weight Loss?

Fitness experts say that cross country ski machines are useful all-round workouts that work both the upper and lower body, raise the heart rate and burn more calories than if you used exercise equipment that works just one or the other area. These machines work the quadriceps, hamstrings and hips– as well as the back, arms and shoulders.

How Often Should I Ski For Optimum Weight Loss?

Aim for 30 strides per minute for 15 minutes, 3 times a week. Only do lower body movements for the first 2 months.

Add movement of your arms as well as your legs. Increase strides to 35 per minute for 15 minutes, 3 times a week. Keep this pace for about a month.

Increase the resistance a couple of notches. Aim for 40 strides per minute for 30 minutes, 5 times a week.

Cross Country Ski Machines - How To Start

Ski simulators may be difficult to use in the beginning and may take some practice. Establishing a rhythm while moving the arms and legs can be difficult. To speed up the process, work on the leg motion alone, then practice the arm action by itself, before combining the two movements.
