Not Skating Today - Off Ice Workout

My coach told me to start doing some off ice jumping.  Two footed 1/4 turns and then 1/2 turns, eventually full turns.

I found this great website with videos of a young and very lightweight girl demonstrating a bunch of off ice exercises.

Think I will go try a few!


After quickly viewing most of the off ice exercises I saw on this website I went to the gym and tried a few.  Unfortunately I did not set up my camera with a full body view and you can only see me from the waist up.... (how convenient!)

These are harder than I thought.  Especially checking out of even a 1/2 rotation off the ice.
My immediate opinion is that they will help a lot in strengthening my jumps.
