Muscle Strengthening with Yann Guyader 07: Arm moves
Your legs hurt? Alright, let’s have a little break with the lower limbs to focus for a few minutes on the upper limbs’ technique. Speed Skating World Champion Yann Guyader gives us tips for a good arm position in speed skating…
Improving your arms position
Rotating an arm completely modifies the position of your shoulders, and consequently that of your whole body. You should be particularly careful about your arms position.
For a good execution of the drill
- In a basic skating stance
- Start bent with your hand in front of your face
- Your arm gradually stretches out backwards
- Once in the back, your arm is straight and in the axis
Series of leaps in a skating stance with synchronized arms. Take a look at the second part of the video.
