The three main techniques in classical cross country skiing, double poling (DP) double poling with kick (DK) and diagonal stride (DS), are characterized by different coordination patterns and by a different involvement of arms and legs. The aim of this study was to compare the cost of locomotion between these techniques on flat and uphill conditions.

Abstract

The three main techniques in classical cross country skiing, double poling (DP) double poling with kick (DK) and diagonal stride (DS), are characterized by different coordination patterns and by a different involvement of arms and legs. The aim of this study was to compare the cost of locomotion between these techniques on flat and uphill conditions.
