DOUBLE POLING: ENDURANCE vs CARDIO

DOUBLE POLING: ENDURANCE vs CARDIO

Endurance and cardio are two methodologies to train different important double-poling aspects

Endurance

Endurance is a training methodology which develops the resistance to long distances. The double pole movement should be complete in order to stimulate the upper-body.

To be performed as short intervals of 4-5 minutes or for longer sessions of 30-40 minutes. Indicatively the thrust rate should be 45-50 per minute.

The resistance should be high. This means skiing, roller-skiing uphill or adjusting the ercolina to simulate the hill.

Cardio

Cardio is a training methodology which develops the explosive power and the coordination.

It requires short and intese intervals, about 30-40 seconds each. The double pole movement becomes shorter in order to achieve maximum speed.

Indicatively the thrust rate should be 70-75 per minute or even more.

 

Let’s see how Bruno trains using these two methodologies!
