Nordic Ski Lab explains body position and how the body moves in V2 skate skiing (One Skate technique in Canada, or Skate 2 in the UK). Understanding how the body works in V2 skate skiing is the key to effortless skiing because the core of the body powers both the pole push and the leg push. If you find V2 skate skiing challenging, you probably need to focus more on body position and the core of the body and worry less about the poling and the leg push.
