Cross-Country Skiing 3: Free and Easy

Cross-Country Skiing  3: Free and Easy

Silver Prize -NY Intl. Ski Film Festival
Cross-country skiing continues to gain fans throughout the world and each year the number of beginners increases. Through proper conditioning, improved technique, and "on-the-snow" training, beginners can prepare themselves for the demands of cross-country skiing and enhance their enjoyment of this sport. This ageless program introduces the beginning cross-country skier to several exercises that he or she can use to strengthen muscles in their backs, shoulders, stomachs, and legs, as well as several pieces of exercise equipment that have been specifically designed for the cross-country skier. It presents "roller-skiing" as an exciting off-season activity that uses the same techniques used by cross-country skiers. It warns the beginner about cumbersome clothing, poor training conditions, and sloppy technique. The program demonstrates proper balance, hand positioning, and arm movement, plus a hill-taking technique called "bounding off the balls of the feet." The theme of this program is that confidence, conditioning, and concentration will result in a lifetime of "free and easy" cross-country skiing experiences. 95/12DE IJSCA 20 min.
