Figure skating is a game that requires more than simply elegance and aesthetics. While most non-skaters don’t understand this, pulling off any specialized component in skating requires a lot of quality and stamina. Cumbersome positions must be held for augmented timeframes, and muscles that the vast majority scarcely ever utilizes must be solid keeping in mind the end goal to execute the hops, twists, and lifts that inspires the group and judges. All figure skaters, paying little respect to age or capacity, ought to participate in an appropriate off-ice quality and molding program keeping in mind the end goal to give them the quality and stamina to execute components, furthermore to anticipate wounds.
Note: Be certain to check with your mentor, your folks, and your doctor before taking part in any off-ice practice and molding program.
Figure skaters hoping to construct any kind of off-ice molding program that need to take a gander at their general destinations with a specific end goal to assemble a by and large off-ice program. I might want to recommend three activities specifically that all off-ice projects ought to consolidate, and this is for all skaters, including sets, move, and freestylers.
Tips for improving your ice skating skills:
- Bike crunches:
Like competitors in pretty much any game, if a figure skater were to do literally nothing else off-ice aside from ONE thing, then it would need to include center quality. Your center quality is the thing that permits you to look at of bounced, focus your twists, and keep up an erect stance in move and step arrangements. Have a go at doing a twizzle or looking at your turn of an Axel without center quality – it essentially wouldn’t occur.
A study directed at San Diego State University assessed over twelve distinctive stomach practices for expanding center quality, and one emerged far or more the rest: The bike crunch. To do the bike crunch, lie on the floor with your abs drew in and your lower back squeezed into the floor (you may need to pivot your pelvis under to accomplish this). Put the hands adjacent to your ears (DON’T pull up on the neck!) and hoist your legs to around a forty-five-degree point. Move your legs through a bike accelerating movement while at the same time crunching up in a bending movement and touching your elbow to your inverse knee.
- Arabesque activities
In the realms of the move, tumbling, and figure skating, the arabesque position is a standout amongst the most well-known positions you should figure out how to manage. For figure skaters, this is especially genuine with regards to spirals and camel turns.
To fabricate your adaptability and stamina for holding the arabesque/winding position, take a shot at the accompanying turn, to be finished on every foot. Begin by holding the arabesque position for one moment while supporting yourself with the divider, then one more moment with your leg bolstered by an accomplice or half divider, then one moment all alone, then one more moment with your arms on the divider once more. Rest around 30 seconds at every position! These one moment interims will be troublesome at to start with, yet will enhance after some time and extraordinarily help you, particularly on the off chance that you additionally do artful dance or tumbling.
- Box hops
For most observers of our games, the hops draw the enormous rounds of praise. On the off chance that you are a free-form skater, your bounced are normally your most troublesome specialized component, and something you spend a large portion of your preparation time dealing with idealizing. Completely turning your hops, especially your pairs, triples and, on the off chance that you can pull it off, a quad, requires a mind-boggling capacity to get “hang time” noticeable all around. Getting “hangs time” is primarily a matter of having the capacity to vault yourself into the air with unbelievable power, which itself involves shear quality.
Box bounced are one of ideal approaches to chip away at your hopping force and increment your time noticeable all around. Detonating up onto the crate and afterward detonating off the container and back to the ground is the most fundamental strategy for taking a shot at your hop control. Extra strategies for box hopping incorporate bouncing up onto one box, then promptly onto another, higher, box, and afterward back to the ground. There are various varieties of this workout, all of which will enhance your hopping capacity.
These three activities all by themselves involve an essential off-ice preparing program conceivable. Obviously, as with any competitor, eating right, getting enough rest, and an essential cardio program is likewise of advantage to all skaters.
