Muscle Strengthening with Yann Guyader 12

Muscle Strengthening with Yann Guyader 12

It's not because we're uploading drills after drills that you don't deserve a break! Speed Skating World Champion Yann Guyader is going to make you suffer a little more with that variation of our previous drill on cross-overs. This time, let's opt for a straight leg that doesn't touch the ground. Breaking down of the drill…

By  Alexandre CHARTIER

Static work on cross-overs with straight leg

A few instructions

  • Keep your hips in the axis
  • In fact it is two phases of a cross-over: the first phase with your leg stretched to the inside, the second with your leg stretched to the outside.
  • Your foot shouldn't touch the ground, it is just above it.


Series of 2x8 to 2x10 sec on one leg: 8 to 10 seconds with your leg stretched to the outside, 8 to 10 seconds with your leg stretched to the inside.
