For rapid fire extending & flexing the legs what is the best method for quickness & most economical for conserving energy so large vertical can be skied none stop, while performing salomon through rapid type turns ? (cross unders)
Is it quicker to actively extend through the turn then actively flex to release skis & keep flexing through transition as skis come under body then tip skis & actively extend legs on other side?
Is it quicker to actively extend then relax the edges to release the turn then actively flex through transtion then actively extend as skis are tipped? (perhaps relax before actively extending)
Is it quicker to only actively extend through the turn then just relax & let the forces that are released do all the flexing of the legs through transition then tip the skis & actively extend ?
Instead of the focus being on extending & relaxing, Should the focus be on flexing & relaxing ?
What is the quickest way of doing this for both the quicker independent leg action & for doing a quick turn where weight is on both skis i.e., when skiing powder ?
If relaxing is used @ some point instead of always actively extending & flexing maybe it would give the legs time to rest the way the hart beats then rests so it is more energy efficient ?
When Bolt won the 100m the anouncer said something about the runners had to relax the last part of the race to keep thier speed up. Perhaps relaxing Through part of the flexing & extending process would benifit skiers as well ?
Any thoughts or research appriciated
