Hi Ernst,

I would say that the running protocol would be most relevant to XC Skiing. I would definitely add in some bicep and tricep work to adapt the program more specifically, but the recommended programs and routines for running would be very pertinent for your sport. Let me know if you have any additional questions.

Hi Ernst,

I echo what Jason says about which training plan to use for Nordic skiing. Since it is such a complete body sport, I wouldn't hesitate to train the latissimus dorsi and the abdominals as well. I know that time for NMES training becomes an issue at some point. You may consider emphasizing a muscle group that you feel is weaker than the rest. You could also cycle through muscle groups that are trained, but don't switch the group of muscles trained more than every three weeks. It will take that long for the first significant increases in strength to occur.
