Pushoff in speed skating requires an extensive motion strategy. During speed skating the skater continuously changes the lean and steering angle of the skate and therewith the direction of push-off, The forces in an inertial coordinate system can give insight into what amount of the push-off force is directed into the forward motion. In this paper we present the preliminary results of a study on the global forces in speed skating. From a mechanical viewpoint, increasing the lean angle of the skate seems beneficial at the end of the stroke, but detrimental at the start of the stroke. Furthermore the necessity of the<br/>lateral force on the skate in the overall f...
