Muscle Strengthening with Yann Guyader 09: Bringing the skate back with tonicity

Muscle Strengthening with Yann Guyader 09: Bringing the skate back with tonicity

In order to go faster, you have to increase the pushing phases and reduce the static phases. You should then bring your skates back with tonicity. Your strides should remain wide but reactive. Yann Guyader explains it all in details after a few coordination fails…

Bringing back your skates with tonicity

In order to bring your skates back with tonicity, you should be relaxed and have a good hip flexibility. If you are too tense, you may lose in skating amplitude and consequently in pushing efficiency.

For a good execution of the drill

  • Start bent from a push stance
  • Bring back your leg without straightening up too much
  • Keep a good move amplitude
  • Get a good execution speed

Repetitions

10 for each leg.
