While Skiing and Skating, your already in motion and all your doing is channelling the motion so it's not the same.
I'm confused.

Let's start from beginning, your weight is on both of your legs. To move your front foot forward, you have to somehow lift your front foot off the ground, i.e. no weight on the front foot. There are three ways to do that.

1. shift your weight from your front leg to your back leg.

2. push off ground with your front foot.

3. drop your centre/front leg, so your front body is in a free fall.

I was thinking of the number 3 method.Its the same mechanism in skating/skiing.

If you're not using the 3 method, how do you lift your front knee?
