Muscle Strengthening with Yann Guyader 04: Squatting on skates
The main aim of the squat drill is to strengthen you quadriceps. Your hamstrings (quadriceps antagonists) are also stimulated as well as, to a lower extent, your lower back.
The good stance
- Place yourself into a skating stance (bent at a 90° to 110° angle)
- Your heels touching the ground
- Your feet at hip width
- Your knees keeping the same spacing as your feet the whole time
Do series of 20 to 30 sec with 20 to 30 seconds of recovery in-between. Hold until it burns, that's where it gets interesting!
