Cross-country skiing because it's so aerobic, anything that gets your heart rate going really works as great cross training. So in the spring, I do a lot of dance classes, which I very much enjoy. In the summer we do a ton of trail running. We also do a lot of gravel biking, sometimes swimming when it's really hot. And of course, a lot of roller skiing to train for cross-country skiing in the summer."
In the winter I like to do cross-country skiing, in the spring I enjoy dance classes, and in the summer we do a lot of trail running, gravel biking and swimming. We also roller ski to train for cross-country skiing.
I'm the queen of cross-training and I love to do a variety of activities to stay fit for skiing. These activities include mountain biking, gravel biking, swimming, surfing, beach volleyball, roller skiing, strength training, and running when I can. I also like to shoot hoops when I have friends around as it is a great warm up. Doing all these activities helps me develop different skills and muscle groups which helps me become a better skier.
In the summer, Nordic skiers typically cross-train by roller skiing, running and strength training. Other activities include swimming and mountain biking. Playing hockey is another great option for cross-training that can be done year round.
I cross-train by running, mountain biking, and motocross in the summer. I encourage people to do whatever sports they find enjoyable as a form of effective training.
