Biking Example

Does every one know what a 5 would feel like ?

Biking is a good chance to do controlled deeper breathing.

Points to pay attention to

Points to pay attention to


When every one biked for 70 min - DID everyone go the same distance?

Same Speed ?

What other Variables might cause this




Control your breathing

What pace does a 7 feel like ?

How can you tell ?

Again – DID everyone go the same speed in the 4 min runs ?

Same Distance????

DID some maybe RUN harder just to keep up to a group ??



Running Example

What pace should an 8 feel like ?

How will you know ?



Running Example

What should a 9 feel like ?

How will you know



Running Example

What should an 8.5 feel like ?

What is the difference between an

Intensity of 8 and 8.5 ?



Running Example

Maximal Speed

Thinking about practicing reaction times

Training basics running biking imitations

Training Basics - Running / Biking / imitations

An example of training


An Example of “Training” ?



IT is pretty simple !

MOST Skaters NEED to grow their bodies ability to process more oxygen in the Aerobic Power system-

--as well as get physically stronger.

This takes CONSISTENT DEDICATION as well as TIME .


Spring 2013





Fall 2014

T2t training basics strength

You do not begin strength training with weights - You will work up to that stage eventually

T2T Training Basics - Strength

you begin with the basics and get good at them, [Movements – Flexibility – strength ] getting stronger through your ranges of motion and developing joint stability ----- BEFORE you attempt weights .

T2t training basics leg strength

  • 1 work up to that stage eventually st Set - 1 X 50 free standing single leg squats (Blocks of 10)- Technical position – Knee to ankle . IF you cannot do a free standing SLQ – Do them with your recovery leg supported on something about your knee height. ( Or a progression there of)

  • 2nd set - Kords (40) - 4 X 10 each way r 3’ ( Focus on Technique)

  • Cadence - 2 down - 0 - 2 up - 0 , staying in a tucked position ( You need to feel your abs are engaged. (do 10 turn and do 10 with other leg and repeat until done)

  • Lean angle - at least 45 degrees from perpendicular - Make sure support knee stays under middle of chest when compressed . DO Not grab belt with hand - hold just enough to avoid rotation . Try to drop your shoulder closest to belt support, so your shoulders remain parallel with the ground. Recovery leg DOES NOT touch the ground. During lowest point of compression the recovery leg knee touches the ANKLE of the support leg, weight should be mid foot. Need knee well over toes. ( An angled foot brace gives a better feel of the push to better mimic when you skate).

  • 3rd Set - Position Weight shift - 1 X 4 Min ( 8 sec switches) r 3’ NO ROTATION ( use a mirror –if possible ) - Make sure hip is being pushed across ( All the upper body mass moves in unison) -away from the pushing leg - engage your abs & glutes when you press away. Hips actually go lower while pushing across. Lift extension leg after push is complete - for a 2 count, to make sure your hip is in a proper position.

T2T Training Basics - Leg Strength

If you cannot easily do this - why would you need to do WEIGHTS?
