THE MAIN TRAINING METHODS USED IN SPEED SKATING AND THEIR INFLUENCE OVER SPORT PERFORMANCES
The development of speed skating has met lately a spectacular evolution also in the countries that
have a relatively new tradition in this sport, countries that, of many times, have borrowed methods and
means from countries with an older tradition in speed skating, adapting to the bio-psycho-somatic
characteristics specific to the zones but also, and not in the last place, to the existent base in these countries.
This paper points out some of the main training methods used by great champions, methods
developed by foreign and Romanian scientific investigators.
