Hello skaters, parents, and coaches,

I hope the spring skating season is treating you well! As the spring competition season approaches, make sure to taper your off-ice training routines the week of a competition to avoid muscle soreness and fatigue. Schedule your strength training sessions accordingly to get the most effective workout and competition program. If you haven't added dynamic warmups (hint, no or little static stretching!) to your pre-competition routine, it's not too late to start. From Sk8Strong's Ultimate Dynamic Warmup DVD (www.sk8strong.com/catalog/item/7395949/7718815.htm), you can create an effective warmup of any length, to make you competition ready before your on-ice warmup. And don't forget to evaluate your nutrition habits the night before and the day of a competition. Check out our nutritionist database www.sk8strong.com/nutritionists.html to contact some great nutritionists for advice. Definately not my expertise!
