XC Ski Training with Nikolai Anikin from October 2012-March 2013
In the fall we will work on ski specific drills and exercises designed to mimic winter ski conditions. Most fall workouts begin with an easier 15-30min warmup hike followed by 30-45min of ski specific instruction and ending with 15-30min of pole hiking to practice what you've learned. We will alternate skate and classic sessions in the fall and throughout the winter. Once the snow flies we will work on more specific aspects of XC skiing including skate and classic techniques.
We will do several short individual time trials to keep track of your progress. For dryland we'll find a long gradual uphill ~3min and use ski poles to bound or do elastic imitation. On snow we'll do ~2.5k. When its nice to skate we'll do a skate time trial and when the classic track is in good shape we'll do a classic time trial.
We will also do video analysis. I'll film you doing all the techniques and the following week or perhaps when the weather is bad we will get together for video analysis.
We meet from 6-8 pm every week. Cost for the 6 month program is $300 or $25/lesson.
