Amsterdam – Speed/Fitness Skating Workshop
September 15 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Every skater spends MOST of their time on skates JUST SKATING! However if your Skating Stride lacks the essentials, you will not get the Fitness benefits that skating offers and you may create bad habits over time that can lead to ‘slow onset injuries’ (e.g. ankle, knee, hip pains from persistent pronation on an inside edge).
There are 3 parts to your skating Stride; The Push, the Glide and the Regroup.
All 3 must be correct for the stride to flow, look good and produce sustained high speeds.
Are you Pushing efficiently?
Is your Glide correct in terms of edges and cadence?
Is your Regroup maximising your Stride or is it destroying all the hard work you just put in?
Asha’s series of Stride exercises is designed to progressively train all 3 parts of your Stride and help you understand what’s needed for super smooth (and fast) skating. This workshop will leave you with many drills to train and perfect over coming weeks which will improve your technique and your fitness and lower body strength if you do them regularly. This workshops is NOT appropriate for Beginners. You should already be able to skate the Amsterdam Friday Night Skate as a pre-requisite.
Cost: £30 (35€) for 3 hours
