Off-Ice Core Strength Training – Part 3 (Matthew Blair Davis)

Figure skating strength and conditioning expert Matthew Blair Davis continues his discussion of core strength training for figure skaters. In Part 1 of the series, Matthew explains how to properly use a TRX Rip Trainer. In Part 2, he explained a ball slam exercise. And in this video, he shares an excellent training exercise using a TRX suspension trainer.

This exercise strengthens the core as well as the upper body. Notice the discussion of how this helps with the movements for pulling in during jumps and it also has a beneficial component that improves a skater’s posture (lowering shoulders). Matthew offers a number of tips to ensure maximum benefit, including maintaining a strong alignment throughout, from the head to the feet.
