Does anyone know stretches to prepare for figure skating?

by admin on February 6, 2010

Im going to take figure skating lessons this summer and i am as flexible as a stick. The non bendy kind. If I do stretches every day until i start my lessons, i’ll have no problem! I need to stretch my legs. So does anyone know any good leg stretches to prepare for figure skating? THANX!!!

You should start stretching just like you would if you were going for a run. Stretch your quads and calf muscles, and don’t overstretch at first. You don’t want to pull a muscle. On youtube, there’s a channel called Gina10179202, and she gives great videos and advice for beginners and how to stretch. Hope this helps and good luck!
