Abstract :

The article reports on a study to evaluate fluctuations in total mechanical energy of the body (Ebody) in relation to external ergometer work (Werg) during the poling and recovery phases of simulated double-poling cross-country skiing. The results indicate that double poling involves a unique movement pattern different from most other forms of legged terrestrial locomotion, which are characterized primarily by inverted pendulum or spring-mass types of movement.
