Abstract

The strategies of raising the cycle rate of the pole ground contact phase and of overcoming the trade-off between cycle rate and cycle length have been noted as important for improving a cross-country skier's double poling skills. The present study investigates the problem of improving the double poling skills of Japanese elite male cross-country skiers to an internationally competitive level by analyzing the trade-off or absence thereof and the timing skills seen in their gliding motion.
