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 Competitive Skater," skaters are instructed exercises in three different circuits that last 30-45 minutes each, depending on the number of sets and repetitions you choose to complete. Each exercise clip includes full demonstration and instruction of proper technique and body mechanics. The exercises include:
Three to four functional lower extremity exercises per circuit
Two to three upper body strengthening exercises per circuit
Three advanced core stabilization exercises per circuit
Beginning to advanced plyometric jump exercise progressions to add to any circuit
The exercises can be progressed from a skilled to highly advanced level with the use of medicine and stability balls, sport cords, foam rolls, and balance boards and discs. The challenge levels are endless, and you choose how fast or slow you progress, according to your ability and schedule! Each exercise is instructed in detail to describe proper technique. You will receive a written exercise progression for each exercise. This DVD is appropriate for a skater at or above the pre-juvenile level (working on double or triple jumps), the competitive skater, an advanced adult skater under the age of thirty, or a skater who is experienced with fitness training.
