If you have already mastered the technique of sliding on initial skating , it's time to move on to the more complex elements of the ski, namely, to rotations.
thrusting the right shoulder and right arm (for turning left), tilt the body slightly to the center of the rink, "to lie on the arc."The left leg is bent at the same time in the ankle and knee joints.
Push off the outside edge of the skate blade of the left foot, leaving the right foot in an arc and putting it on the inner edge of the ice skate blade.
perform swing left foot to pull it, and make a right foot push the inner edge of the ridge in the direction of rotation to full extension legs in the knee joint.
The complete cycle will consist of repelling m
ovements of the right and left legs.The greater the speed and the steeper the turn, the folding legs and tilt housing will be more, so as to resist the increasing centrifugal forces.The same principle is carried out, and turn right.
Beyond simply slip and turns necessary to know how to slow down, to insure themselves against sudden collisions.There is a way to hockey braking with the turn at a right angle on two legs or one leg.This method of braking is necessary to carry out the provisions of a direct parallel to the sliding legs.
Start with the rotation movement of the head and body into the turn.
both skates sharp turn 90 ° right angles to the direction of your movement, the body involuntarily deflected in the direction opposite to the movement.Simultaneously bend your knees.
Transfer of total body weight in the opposite direction, increasing the pressure force of the blades of skates on the ice, and thus the speed of the deceleration.Timely flexing the knees leads to a drastic reduction in forward speed skates.
