  2. 2. Computational Biomechanics in Cross-country Skiing

    University dissertation from Institutionen för ekonomisk och industriell utveckling

    Author : Joakim L. Holmberg; Anders Klarbring; Ingrid Svensson; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Computer simulation; Inverse dynamics; Musculoskeletal; Optimization; Simulation model; Sports; Computational Biomechanics; Cross‐country Skiing; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik;

    Abstract : Traditionally, research on cross‐country skiing biomechanics is based mainly on experimental testing alone. Trying a different approach, this thesis explores the possibilities of using computational musculoskeletal biomechanics for cross‐country skiing. As far as the author knows, this has not been done before. READ MORE

  3. 3. Scientizing performance in endurance sports The emergence of ‘rational training’ in cross-country skiing, 1930-1980

    University dissertation from Institutionen för ekonomisk och industriell utveckling

    Author : Daniel Svensson; Sverker Sörlin; Nina Wormbs; Leif Yttergren; Helena Tolvhed; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; History; environmental history; history of science; history of technology; landscape studies; cross-country skiing; Nordic skiing; endurance physiology; sport history; sportification; scientization; sport physiology; sport science; Sweden; History of Science; Technology and Environment; Historiska studier av teknik; vetenskap och miljö;

    Abstract : Elite athletes of today use specialized, scientific training methods and the increasing role of science in sports is undeniable. Scientific methods and equipment has even found its way into the practice of everyday exercisers, a testament to the impact of sport science. READ MORE

  4. 4. Musculoskeletal Biomechanics in Cross-country Skiing

    University dissertation from Institutionen för ekonomisk och industriell utveckling

    Author : L. Joakim Holmberg; Anders Klarbring; Hans-Christer Holmberg; Anders Eriksson; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Why copy the best athletes? When you finally learn their technique, they may have already moved on. Using muscluloskeletal biomechanics you might be able to add the "know-why" so that you can lead, instead of being left in the swells. READ MORE

  5. 5. Physiological demands of competitive elite cross-country skiing

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Magnus Carlsson; Michail Tonkonogi; Christer Malm; Eva Andersson; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Performance capability; maximal oxygen uptake; lactate threshold; lean mass; double poling; power output; maximal speed; sprint skiing; distance skiing.;

    Abstract : Introduction Researchers have, for decades, contributed to an increased collective understanding of the physiological demands in cross-country skiing; however, almost all of these studies have used either non-elite subjects and/or performances that emulate cross-country skiing. To establish the physiological demands of cross-country skiing, it is important to relate the investigated physiological variables to the competitive performance of elite skiers. READ MORE
