Seasonal changes in VO2max vary between 5 and 15% in young skiers and between 3 and 10% in adult skiers. From summer to autumn the average increase Main points to remember about maximum oxygen uptake of cross country skiers • When comparing skiers with different body size, VO2max is divided by body weight raised to the power of 2/3. • Maximal oxygen uptake of world-class male and female cross country skiers is 85–95 and 70–80 ml·kg–1·min–1, and 350–360 and 270–290 ml·kg2/3·min–1, respectively, and sprint skiers have as high VO2max as other skiers.

However, there is a tendency to lower VO2max during uphill skating than during uphill diagonal skiing. 3 l·min–1 less. 2 l·min–1 less VO2max during uphill ski-skating. All-round skiers attained a similar VO2max for each exercise. The lower VO2max during skating and leg muscle oxygen saturation measurements indicate that the blood flow to leg muscles is decreased because of the static-type muscle contractions during V· O2max (ml·kg−1·min−1) V· O2 (ml·kg −1·min−1) 70 27 SD SW DS SK Classical Free style 80 V· O2 (ml·kg −1·100 m−1) CCSC01 SD DS or SK Double poling 80 70 60 50 Men (n = 3) Women (n = 5) Fig.
