Speed & Fitness Skating – 5th June 2021
Location: Trax Skatepark, Beversesteenweg 67A 8800 Roeselare
Every skater spends MOST of their time on skates JUST SKATING!
However if your skating stride lacks the essentials, you will not get the fitness benefits that skating offers and you may create bad habits over time that can lead to ‘slow onset injuries’ (e.g. ankle, knee, hip pains from persistent pronation on an inside edge).
There are 3 parts to your skating stride; The Push, the Glide and the Regroup.
All 3 must be correct for the stride to flow, look good and produce sustained high speeds.
Are you pushing efficiently?
Is your glide correct in terms of edges, balance and cadence?
Is your regroup maximising your stride or is it destroying all the hard work you just put in?
Asha’s series of exercises is designed to progressively train all 3 parts of your stride and help you understand what’s needed for super smooth (and fast) skating.
This workshop does not cover the Double Push (although most skaters fail with the double push because their normal fitness stride lacks the correct foundations). So this class is a good pre-double push workout.
Please note: This group lesson is not appropriate for beginner level skaters.
