Double poling technique (DP) is a particular type of skiing locomotion due to the extensive use of the upper body. Cost of locomotion is generally related to metabolic adaptations to training, but also biomechanical strategies can concur to set the amount of energy spent to travel at a given speed. The aim of this investigation was to analyze metabolic and biomechanical characteristics of two differently skilled groups of cross-country skiers, in relation to the energetic cost of DP locomotion.

Abstract

Double poling technique (DP) is a particular type of skiing locomotion due to the extensive use of the upper body. Cost of locomotion is generally related to metabolic adaptations to training, but also biomechanical strategies can concur to set the amount of energy spent to travel at a given speed. The aim of this investigation was to analyze metabolic and biomechanical characteristics of two differently skilled groups of cross-country skiers, in relation to the energetic cost of DP locomotion.
