… Or how to work simultaneously on pushes and technique. It’s simple, it’s about reproducing the skating move in doing lateral leaps with a forwards motion.

A few useful tips

  • This is a skating move
  • Make sure that your hips don’t twist to the left or to the right
  • Avoid translation moves
  • Your foot should come back in the axis to avoid unwanted moves
