Canoe complement

I am deep into rollerski and dryland training (in prep for the skate sky season) and am heading out on a 5 day canoe/camping trip. Could you recommend a workout routine for this trip which would encompass the most critical exercises for skiing, given I'll have limited time and no equipment (except for those found in the wood s. i.e. rocks, fallen trees, bears, etc.)?

Thanks!

B,
 
With Canoeing you will have great upper-body training every day. So if you wish, you will want to work on your lower body with Spenst training.
 
Spenst (dynamic ski specific plyometric exercises) 

Used for: developing explosive power and strength. 
How: The focus is on getting maximum distance on each of 10 to 15 hops. Do sets of 10 to 15 hops and take full recovery (2-3 mins) between sets. Skating spenst can be done by hopping from side to side in one place, or jumping sideways up a steep hill. Classical spenst can be done by hopping on one leg at a time up a steep hill, or by bounding with both legs up a steep hill. Be imaginative, and warm up and down very, very well.
 
But enjoy your canoeing and if you wish,  include intervals while canoeing.

Spenst Training by Justin Freeman
 
Skiing is generally regarded as an aerobic sport, and rightly so. But it is also an explosive power sport. Unlike running, cycling, or swimming, where power is applied nearly continuously, each individual stride in a cross country ski race is an explosive event-certainly more explosive than in any other endurance sport. It is in order to train this explosive power that we do spenst workouts. This article gives an overview of spenst training theory and practice.

Spenst comes from a Norwegian word meaning vertical jump. A spenst workout is one with the goal of increasing the height of your vertical jump. In America the word has taken on a slightly different meaning; a spenst workout is one where you work on your ski-specific explosive power.
 
There are two equally important components to training ski-specific explosive power. The more obvious component is simply the muscle power. But it is just as important to train the body position and technique that allow you to apply this power effectively.
 
One of the best ways to incorporate body position training into your spenst routine is to extend your warm-up. Even if this means a shorter time spent doing jumps and such it is well worth it. To get anything out of your spenst routine you must be thoroughly warm, and you also must see and feel 
the connection between ski racing and the exercises you are doing.
 
(Note: the workout I am about to describe contains more exercises than you should do in a single session. You might want to do a session with just the classic exercises, or just the skate, or your favorite combination. But don't do all the of these.)
 
Your initial warm-up should be 20-30 minutes, ending at the base of a hill with good footing and a moderate and consistent grade. Stop here and stretch for a while. Next, do the following classic technique drills:

Classic arm swing: Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, flex at the ankles and knees to bring your hips forward, and then roll your shoulders forward so that your spine has a good C-curve to it. Now, swing your arms as if you were classic skiing. Your arms should move loosely at the shoulders, but avoid hyperextention of the shoulders or rotation of the upper spine. You should drive your arms forward with sufficient force that your knees bend forward with each arm swing.
 
Next, add one leg to the exercise. While balancing on your left leg, swing your right leg forward in sync with your left arm. Focus on driving both your arms and your leg forward. Make sure that your back stays rounded. If you do this rightyou will almost have to hop forward each time your leg swings forward.
 
Finally, do some easy ski walking. You can do this with or without poles (if you use poles they should be about 10 cm shorter than your classic poles). The idea right now is to stay well inside level one, and to really feel like you are on snow. Keep in mind the same things as in the last two drills: keep your back rounded, your hips forward, and drive your arms and legs forward with a crisp, sharp motion. Remember, this is still a technique exercise, so don't try to race, try to feel like you are skiing in level one.

Your first spenst exercise is single leg classic technique hops. This exercise is very similar to the arm and leg swing exercise from the warm-up. Balance on your left leg. Put your right arm forward, and your left arm and right leg behind, as if you were gliding on your left ski. Now, drive your right leg and left arm forward and jump forward off your left leg. The jump should feel like the kick in classic technique--sharp and powerful, rather than long and drawn out. Land on your left leg, and repeat six to ten times. Do two to three sets on each leg.
 
The next exercise is a variant of ski walking. It can be done without poles, but with poles is preferable. The idea is to ski walk with the fastest possible turnover, almost shuffling up hops. This exercise is very similar to the arm and leg swing exercise from the warm-up. Balance on your left leg. Put your right arm forward, and your left arm and right leg behind, as if you were gliding on your left ski. Now, drive your right leg and left arm forward and jump forward off your left leg. The jump should feel like the kick in classic technique--sharp and powerful, rather than long and drawn out. Land on your left leg, and repeat six to ten times. Do two to three sets on each leg.
 
The next exercise is a variant of ski walking. It can be done without poles, but with poles is preferable. The idea is to ski walk with the fastest possible turnover, almost shuffling up the hill. But don't start racewalking. Keep your hips forward and basically square to the direction of travel. Keep your legs and arms driving straight forward. Focus on feeling as if you were skiing with huge tempo. Keep these and all spenst workout sprints to under ten seconds. Do three to eight of these sprints.
 
The finally classic exercise is bounding. Again, it works without poles but it is better to bring poles. Bounding is in some ways the opposite of the last exercise--here you are trying to minimize your tempo by maximizing your stride length. As always, focus on keeping good body position, forward hips, C-curve in the spine. Also focus on minimizing the time your foot spends on the ground. As soon as you land you should be pushing off, starting the next stride. (This may mean a little less distance with each jump, but it also trains you to set you wax more effectively). Do three to eight total bounds, 6 to 10 seconds each.
 
To train good skating position we start with a static drill. Turn your left leg out at the hip. Place your weight on this foot, which should point about 40 degrees away from where you are facing and bend deeply at the ankle and knee to bring the hips forward. Roll your shoulders forward to properly align your spine. Gently bounce up and down an inch or two, and get used to the feeling of balancing like this on one ski. Do this for about 30 seconds on each side, and repeat at least once on each side.Next, start from this position on your left leg and then step to the same position on your right. Try to feel the weight transfer as if you were on snow.
 
Once you are comfortable with this, we can move the the explosive version: Set up in good skate position, hips and shoulders forward, hip turned out, ankles bent. Then jump explosively off of this leg and land in good skate position on the other. You may want to swing your arms in a V-2 skate motion. You may want to take a small hop between jumps to help you set up. Whatever helps you focus on an explosive lateral jump, and allows you to start and finish in a good, technically sound position. Do three sets of a total of about 20 jumps (ten from each leg).
 
For the other skate exercise, line up so that the hill rises to your left. Then, keeping your hips forward, bring your right foot across and plant it in front of and above your left foot. Jump explosively off your right foot so that you land left (up the hill) from where you started. You should swing your arms as if poling as you jump. Land on your left foot, take a second to stabilize, then cross your right foot over and jump again. Do three sets of 10 jumps on each leg.
 
As long as you keep the total number of jumps and sprints low, you can add some less specific exercises. Two-legged jumps, running sprints, backwards running sprints, high-knees sprints, etc. I usually add one of these to my spenst routine. But only one. The aim is for quality and for specificity.
 
Hopefully these exercises will help your spenst routine. Remember, for these to be truly effective you need to be warmed up but fresh, and you need to feel the connection to skiing with each and every jump or sprint. If the connection is unclear, go back to the warm-up technique drills. If you start feeling too tired to execute the workout properly, cool down and go home.

 Sports Drinks

I have been trying to get most of my electrolytes and calories from my energy drink when I train and race. My thought is that I need water with the salt and the calories and its just easier to drink it rather than open gel packs or energy bars or pop salt pills along the way. For long races or workouts I might bring some food along and refill water bottles along the way. I would appreciate your thoughts on this approach. I should add that I sweat out huge amounts of water and salt and this approach has helped me reduce cramping, but I'm open to other ideas. 
F

Frank is on the right track. Sports drinks are specially formulated to optimize carbohydrate delivery and rehydrate the body quickly. Generally sports drinks are a 6 - 8% glucose/fructose solution. This is the optimal amount of carbohydrate and glucose and fructose use different transporters thereby allowing both to be absorbed across the intestinal wall without competition. Any higher than 10% and the osmotic load is too high and it slows the passage of fluids and carbohydrate into circulation. In some cases when athletes consume gels in addition sports drink the amount of CHO in the gut can exceed the body's ability to digest and absorb it and it can lead to stomach cramping as well as reduced hydration and carbohydrate delivery. Sports drink also contains sodium which is important for several reasons. Sodium reduces diuresis which means you will "pee-out" less of what you take in - that's a good thing, it means those fluids are in circulation and not in the toilet. Sodium also increases the "drive to drink" meaning you are more likely to drink more, and sodium is needed to maintain electrolyte balance and avoid hyponatremia (low plasma sodium levels), which is a dangerous condition that results from drinking too much water without any sodium sources over long-duration exercise (4+ hours).
Hope that helps!

Salt Racer

I enjoyed Abby Larson's recent response to the discussion of race energy drinks and sodium. (above) I am a Master ski racer, 59 years old and have been ski marathon racing for 31 years and train about 550 hours per year.  Two years ago I began developing high blood pressure due to high sodium intake in my diet.  I have corrected my blood pressure to a normal range simply by keeping my daily sodium intake under 1,500mg per day.  My question to Abby is, how might this affect my choice of sports drinks during a 50 k race regarding sodium intake needs?  As apparently I retain too much water and sodium. This past season I used my normal choice of HEED by Hammer Nutrition (which has a relatively low sodium content) with good results. Any insights?
GB- "Salt racer"

Sodium replacement during long duration exercise is important and should be considered outside of your usual daily intake. There is much research to support that a low-sodium diet is good for arterial and cardiovascular health. With this in mind, it is important for salt sensitive individuals to keep sodium intake below 2,000 mg/day. This being said, you can view long-duration exercise as an exception. DURING this type of exercise it is a good idea to consume sport drink that has added electrolytes such as sodium. The amount of sodium in most sport drinks is adequate to replace sodium losses via sweat. Consuming a small amount of sodium during exercise minimizes risk of hyponatremia and also increases the drive to drink, thereby supporting adequate hydration practices. Sodium tablets are overkill and not recommended and after exercise you should continue to consume your normal low-sodium diet.  In general sports drink is only needed for exercise over 60 minutes in duration if exercise is conducted in a hot environments or 90 minutes otherwise.
Hope this helps!

and now from Hammer Nutrition

I think that the use of HEED is ideal for athletes, especially those like Gary who are consuming a moderate-to-low sodium diet. Compared to many, many other sports drinks, HEED has a modest amount of sodium (45 mg per scoop), and is complemented will other electrolytic minerals (chloride, calcium, magnesium, and potassium) all working synergistically. Replenishing the body with sodium during exercise -- again, with other electrolytes -- is necessary in order to maintain the optimal performance of many important bodily functions (and to help prevent cramping). Too-high amounts, however, will cause a number of problems, arguably the main one being the disruption of the body's built-in hormonal mechanisms that work to recirculate, and thus conserve, the body's sodium stores.

Base Cleaner vs Wax Remover
I just watched a video recently, where a US team ski maintenance guy said that he did't use citrus based cleaners on ski bases, because of the oils in the cleaner.  Instead he just uses "solvent". It's been my impression that ski bases need to be cleaned with stuff that's made for ski bases. ???  Is it even necessary to use cleaner on the glide zones of your skis?  If so, what's the solventdu jour?
 
Thanks!
 
bn

There is a difference between Wax Removers and Base Cleaners. Wax Removers are harsh and made for to remove kick wax and klisters and all wax from kick zones and are not made for glide zones as they will dry out the base. Base Cleaners are alcohol based and made to gently clean the glide zones and kick zones and totally evaporate with no residue.
So use a Cleaner on your glide zones.  Start has two Cleaners. The Polymer Cleaner 05040 is the most gentle and the HF Cleaner 05044 is a bit more aggressive and used to penetrate Fluorinated waxes.

Registration Now Open for Annual Ski Festival & Cross-Country Ski Camp

West Yellowstone Ski Festival & Cross-Country Ski Camp announced the dates for its annual training and technique clinic. The event will be held November 24-28, 2015.

In the mid 1980s, longtime local Drew Barney, along with Torbjorn Karlsen and Dick Hunt, started what was then called "Fall Camp" to offer coaches the opportunity to attend clinics. In addition, citizen racers and individuals who wanted to improve their skiing technique were also encouraged to attend. Nearly thirty years later, the cross-country ski camp has devotees who come from around the nation and attend every year.

Through the years the camp has grown and evolved to become a top training and technique camp for the cross-country ski community. The number one goal is to provide skiers a top notch clinic experience, whether they are avid master racers looking for an early season training camp or skiers who simply want to improve their technique. The camp has assembled a high end coaching staff comprised of elite cross-country ski professionals. Barney commented, "Our first class coaching staff combined with West Yellowstone's Rendezvous Trail system - which consistently has some of the best early season snow in the country - makes this the ideal place in America to transition from dryland training to on-snow skiing."

For anyone interested in attending the West Yellowstone Cross-Country Ski Camp, you can find more information and register at http://www.skirunbikemt.com/clinics.html.
