Isometric Work for On-Ice Speed Development

Another simple way to develop better, more explosive skaters➖add isometric work. Generally speaking, getting into a deeper/lower is going to be a better skating position, but some skaters can’t consistently skate from a deep position because they don’t have the strength (or more specifically endurance) to keep themselves their. This is where various Yielding Isometric … Continue reading Isometric Work for On-Ice Speed Development
