Muscle Strengthening with Yann Guyader 08: Lateral leaps
Let’s get further into muscle strengthening with Yann Guyader. Here is a dynamic drill for pushes and technique with a series of lateral leaps. More than merely jumping to the sides, you should first think about the good placing of your body…
Series of lateral leaps
A bad placing of the arms will modify your whole body position. A mere rotation of your arm with your elbow opening will make your shoulders pivot. It modifies the general balance of your body and the efficiency of your skating…
For a good execution of the drill
- Execute lateral leaps in reproducing the skating move
- Your knee goes back into the axis
- Hold the position stable at each landing before bringing it back
- Your shoulders shouldn’t twist or pump
- Your arms are active
Take two lines on the ground as landmarks, leaping from one line to the other without moving forwards.
10 leaps for each side, i.e. 20 in total.
