Abstract [en]

Cross-country skiing is one of the most demanding endurance sports. The skiers compete on hilly tracks with a combination of steep uphill, flatter parts and downhill segments, which often are technically very demanding. This imposes coordinative as well as physiological challenges due to the perpetual changes between, and utilisation of, different skiing techniques, each involving the upper and lower body to various extents. During the last decade there has been an enhanced emphasize on upper body development. This has markedly improved skiers endurance and muscle strength in arm and torso region and their capability to utilize a high fraction of VO2 max in different skiing techniques. In addition, novel biomechanical development with innovative modifications of skiing techniques have also contributed to higher racing velocities, decisive for performance especially in the new sprint events and mass-start. The extensive development of elite skier�s upper body during the last years demonstrates a high potential for further adaptation and that arm muscles can adapt towards a similar level as leg muscles in well-trained c.c. skiers. The use of an integrative biomechanical and physiological approach has the potential to add important knowledge and enable further improvements of cross-country skiing performance.
