Default Nordic Dry Land Training --- DoublePole Vaulting? Lunging?

maybe lurching?

I have been enjoying my running with ski poles thing for a couple of
months now and was hoping to get some advice on variations.

I have found that I can make some very satisfyiing "double pole
vaults" running up hills if I place my hands on the top of the hand
grips rather than grasping the hand grips. It feels good kind of like
flying a little bit and provides some upper body conditioning.

I am not experiencing any wrist or rotator cuff discomfort and since I
am going up hill on a soft dirt path the foot strike is light.

Anybody have any thoughts on this topic.

Thanks much,
Ed V.

Hello Ed,

I have seen and practiced similar dryland exercises. There are some
good demonstrations provided on a the USSA DVD called "Wake up! It's
time to Train" and the recently released "Nordic Ski Training Secrets
for High Performance Sport" DVD published by Natural Fitness Labs on
amazon.com.

Hope this helps,
Mike
