Cheering on Local Vermont Olympians

Feb 15, 2018

Josh and Ben, skiers and members of the Concept2 Customer Service team, used this program last year. The program requires just two workouts per week on the SkiErg, preferably not on back-to-back days, and assumes that you are getting exercise on 3–4 other days per week—whether rowing, biking, running or another choice.
