At the levels which a skater is asked to perform double and triple jumps, numerous spin variations, and intricate footwork, a skater must possess significant core strength, lower extremity stability, muscular power, and endurance. "The Competitive Skater" will take your off-ice training to a new level to achieve the strength necessary to move to the next level and beyond....
In “The Ultimate Dynamic Warmup,” skaters of all levels and ages will learn a pre-competition and pre-practice warmup that will prepare every muscle for the demands of skating. There are over thirty exericses to choose from, and detailed instruction of technique is provided for each exercise. Gone are the days of static stretching- dynamic exercise has proven to be the most effective way to increase mobility. The exercises can even be performed on a daily basis, even if you're not a skater!
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.
A developing young skater does not naturally possess the balance, coordination, strength, and movement patterns necessary for the mastery of basic skating skills, jumps, and spins. "Developing the Youth Skater" has all of the tools to improve upon these areas to become a better skater and athlete.
Figure skating is a sport that requires an intense amount of core stability and strength. Without core stability, a skater would have difficulty centering spins, completing footwork patterns, and most important: landing and rotating jumps. This video includes a core exercise program that will take you from beginner to advanced stabilization exericises which will improve upon all of the above and more.
"The Skater Evaluation was created as a tool for coaches, parents, fitness professionals, and skaters to assess a skaters' muscle weaknesses and flexibility imbalances. Included is a catalog of over twenty assessment exercises to evaluate a skater's core, upper body, and lower body strength and flexibility. Once you have determined the skater's deficits, you can proceed to a catalog of over twenty corrective exercises to improve on your findings. Simple to follow and easy to apply, these tests and exercises will give you the knowledge of how to correct musculoskeletal problems that limit a skater's ability to perform jumps, spins, and footwork. Skaters of all levels may use this DVD to improve their skating skills and awareness of what their bodies are capable of. REad mn
