Building Functional Muscle Mass is no easy task. When you’re trying to build a bigger engine for higher output on the ERG, Rower or SkiERG, that task is a bit easier to attain because you don’t have to carry your engine over any sort of distance. This training plan features plenty of strength work to elicit gains in muscle mass. It also features sessions on the ERG that translate to big power gains in terms of speed and watts produced. The goal is simple, gain the muscle mass, and teach your body to use that bigger engine very quickly. That translates to personal bests and records smashed along the way. The SkiERG can also easily be substituted in for the Rower at any point in this cycle. Get Huge and Speed Up.
