Ski striding is a dryland training technique to simulate skiing when there’s no snow. Diagonal stride technique has two parts: a kick phase and a gliding phase. Ski striding is a very efficient simulation of the kick phase. It strengthens the right muscles and it trains them to fire in the correct pattern to optimize your kick.
