off skates exercise!

Post by LL Cool Gay » Thu Jun 13, 2013 9:13 am

Hey meat pals,

So y'all are coming up to week 4 of fresh meat now, exciting! You're probably starting to realise the benefits of doing exercise off skates so I thought I'd start a forum thread for members of the league to suggest exercises they do off skates to improve their performance on skates.

I'll start us off!

I do a mixture of HIIT and normal cardio (you need both, yo) and weight training. I love weights. They are basically the best thing in the world. What I would suggest for derby is SQUATS. If you think you've done enough squats, do ten more. Then again. Also, work your core. I didn't bother and I had real problems getting crossovers. Now I've been working my core every day I feel like my left leg is able to give me the push I need in crossovers because my core is holding me where I need to be. Do it!

ARRG, get suggesting.
