Finally, a figure skating product that is created specifically for the adult skater! We all know that figure skating takes a toll on the body, and it is even more difficult for adult skaters to remain healthy and injury free as they are training. "Adult Training" provides a comprehensive off-ice training program that will reduce risk of injury, improve skating skills, and give a skater the strength and power of a younger skater that they never thought they could acheive! But don't associate the word 'adult' with easy. The levels of each exercise can be progressed from simple to very challenging, depending on how much you want to challenge yourself.
In “Adult Training,” skaters are given three different circuits, each 30-45 minutes in length, depending on how many repetitions and sets you choose to do. Each exercise clip is 25-40 seconds in length, and provides detailed demonstration and instruction of proper body mechanics and technique. In this video skaters are instructed:
three to four functional lower extremity exercises per circuit
two to three upper extremity strengthening exericses per circuit
three core stabilization exercises per circuit
basic plyometric exercises to add to any circuit
What makes it different from our other videos? Adult skaters can be more prone to injury and have musculoskeletal conditions not seen in younger athletes. Sk8Strong’s “Adult Training” includes training tips for skaters with the most common musculoskeletal diagnoses. Written progressions are included for every exercise, and you can make them as easy or difficult as you choose, by increasing reps and sets, and adding variations and tools to challenge your balance. Each exercise is instructed in detail to describe proper technique. This video is appropriate for any level adult level skater.
