Practical, sports science guidelines for observing and analysing performers in motion. This e-book is about observing and analysing skiers and skiing videos; for those who are interested in either improving performance or in the technical aspect of skiing. It is for ski instructors, aspirant coaches, advanced skiers, or students of sports science that want to appreciate and analyse skiing performance based on good evidence, sound reasoning and the fundamental movement actions. This book will compliment and augment your existing sports-specific knowledge to take an objective look at skiing technique. Encouraging advanced skiers to continue to improve and think deeper than `copy` this; the content highlights `key points` for appreciating, observing, analysing and improving technical competency.
Providing insight into problem solving, sports technical discussions, appreciating why different technical models exist and supporting developing skiing performance effectively; the book is designed to provoke thoughtful technical reflection.
Optimised for Kindle Fire this e-book includes many additional Internet links for extension material, but the text is designed to be read without them e.g. on a basic reader (even if no links are ever viewed). Depending on your platform, suggested video links may need to be viewed separately on the internet (please try the sample, or read via downloading the free Kindle App to your computer).
