THE EFFECTS OF EIGHT-WEEK SPORTS-SPECIFIC TRAINING ON THE KINEMATICS OF DOUBLE-POLE TECHNIQUES IN NOVICE CROSS-COUNTRY SKIERS
The purpose of the current study was to 1) investigate the effectiveness of an eight-week training specific to cross-country skiing on kinematic characteristics of the double-pole techniques in novice athletes; 2) examine the relationships between joint angles and poling kinematics during different phases of the double-pole in novice and experienced athletes. Ten novice cross-country skiing college athletes from China and nine experienced cross-country skiing college athletes from the United States participated in the eight-week cross-country skiing training. Three cameras were used to collect the kinematics of the double-pole techniques in field before and after the training for the novice athletes while only after the training for experienced skiers. The novice athletes showed significant increases in the speeds and traveled distances during the poling and gliding phases and the entire cycle (pppp
