Muscle Strengthening with Yann Guyader 02: Reinforcing the push phase
Let’s keep making those thighs burn with a new video of muscle strengthening! This time, Yann Guyader presents a strengthening drill to maintain your skating stance during the push phase…
Reinforcing the push phase
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 stride 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)
- Lumbars (low back)
