Muscle Strengthening with Yann Guyader 01: Keeping the skating stance
Good performances in speed skating are the results of several factors: a good equipment, a good technique, and of course a good physical condition! Keeping a good skating stance is one of the major points. Yann Guyader presents a few improvement drills…
Keeping a compact skating stance
Aim of the drill
Keeping the stance as low as you can, the aim being to improve your resistance to lactic and keep a compact and low stance despite the pain. It will also enable you to get a bigger push amplitude. This drill is a good core strengthener too, since you have to keep your abs strained the whole time.
The drill should last between 30 sec and 2 min without break.
Stimulated muscle groups:
- Anterior tibial muscle (shin)
