Without a complete off-ice training program, a skater doesn't stand a chance of acquiring the tremendous physical capacity required for competitive skating. Written by a leading expert in the field, Conditioning for Skating is a highly technical guide to how to prepare off-ice for the rigors of competitive skating. Carl Poe provides a year-long plan designed to help build strength and reduce the risk of injury, that combines off-ice training principles with skating-specific strength and conditioning exercise techniques.
