Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the cross country skiing technique in dependence on the load intensity of students studying Physical Education at the Faculty of Education at the University of South Bohemia. This work is essentially a descriptive study, based on multiple case studies of 6 probands – 4 men and 2 women. According to video analysis was made the evaluation of technique errors of students´ cross-country skiing in three different load zones. We supposed that the number of technique errors will increase with the level of load. This assumption was confirmed. When students were running in the intensity of 130–150 beats was found only one technique error, in the intensity of 150-170 beats were a total of 10 errors, and in the intensity above 170 beats were found a total of 19 errors. The results indicate that the observed physical activity has not yet been fully automatized in variable conditions of different load intensity.
