Re: Training philosophy

2 sets of 7 reps 7 reps is still heavy lifting. Since we are primarily endurance athletes, our bodies are more responsive to lighter weights and more reps - 12 to 15 reps being the optimum. Yes but using light weights like I said. I could much more, both weight and sets. Back to general XC WC train...

Re: Kuzmin scraping and structure

Can't find any info on the type with removable blades? FWIW I have Kuzmin and it works well, although it's a bit tricky to use since it's quite small and you worse as you need to hold it a certain way with the thumbs to prevent it sliding off the edge. I would have like a jig for it. The brush is ve...

Re: Training philosophy

Sad to hear that, climate change taking its toll. I hear similar stories here in Norway too. Hopefully rollerskiing will become more organized in the future to take over some even if it will never be the same of course. @Skiffrace: Similar story from the gym here. I found myself skipping more and mo...

Re: Rottefella Electric

Amazing. :rolleyes: Electrically remote controlled XC bindings. Who would have thought?

I can see how this would be a great thing, especially with skin skis. I'll wait to hear price and experiences, but definitely something for the wish-list.

Re: Training philosophy

So you've been doing the 80% low intensity 20% high those years, Jay? Does it work the best you think? Did you change from another regime before and know the difference? I heard Stina Nilsson's coach say she hadn't done a single speed run for months Maybe the coach is telling the truth, maybe he's n...

Re: Training philosophy

Specific recipes and natural differences aside, the point is generally about training philosophies for XC skiing. In the world cup there are similar differences between skiers (as with Sundby receptive to huge amounts of training hours per year), but they talk about training philosophy all the time ...

Re: Training philosophy

But in everybody's experience, what has been the best training for you? Is there a certain way that's worked better than others? How often and how much do you do high intensity/interval training?

Re: Cleaning and Maintenance of SkinTec Skis?

Cleaning: Normal ski clean liquid and Fiberlene cleaning paper according to Petter Soleng Skinstad who won the 'Fredagsbirken' on skinskis. Note that the Salomon use synthetic material for their skins so that's why one can use petroleum based cleaners like this. Not sure that's advisable on mohair ...

Re: Skin ski, what to get?

But interestingly, the shop says the Salomon skin is not actually made of mohair like the others, it's made from some synthetic material. The Salomon web page is the typical modern one that's virtually impossible to find any useful info on, so can't confirm it, and even the contact link doesn't wor...

Re: Training philosophy

But the erroneous assumption could just as well be that there is nothing transferable, and certainly that the wish of amateurs is to be on the same fitness as top athletes. Also that this thread is just about top athletes, since it's about training philosophy in general even if the OP describes top ...

Re: Training philosophy

But isn't it still relative? Can only speak for myself, but if I train too hard one day, I'm knackered for days and my scheduled training day (I typically train every other day), is a chore and usually has to be cut short and then I doubt the sum gain is significant, although I can't be sure.
