Dominant physical, physiological and anthropometric variables associated with the success of alpine skiers
Showkat Bashir, G Vinod Kumar
Snow skiing is a game which requires almost all physical, physiological, anthropometric, biome Chanical and psychological parameters for improving performance of athletes. This study is related to those parameters which are of prominent importance for an athlete to improve his performance in snow skiing, especially in alpine skiing. In this study we are discussing only about physical, physiological and anthropometric variables helpful for skiers. Based on various studies we have chosen those variables which play a dominant role in improving performance or at least show ones peak performance. These variables are aerobic capacity, strength, flexibility, power, and body composition. On-hill snow training and dryland training programs should focus on the elevation of these fitness components.
