This video shows you how to improve your skimo striding and bounding technique.
Ski striding and bounding are great tools for training. Ski striding is a lot like walking uphill but with an extra hip thrust, creating a more fluid movement. Striding requires the heel placement and leg extension to be farther forward than just walking.
Ski bounding is a faster, more powerful version of ski striding. Using the same basic technique, all you do is add power and more drive to get to bounding. The foot is still out in front while maintaining a solid hip swing. Bounding is a great way to increase the intensity of a workout and build muscle where ski striding can’t.
