The Skate-2-Ski programs are focused on achieving the greatest possible results from training with good technique, with variety and with regularity. The Skate-2-Ski programs will, through the dry land training activities best prepare the skater for the alpine skiing experience.
The two major exercise systems that determine physical performance are the cardio-vascular system (the basis of all aerobic exercise) and the major muscle system (the location of ATP energy production).
Improved cardio-vascular health can be achieved by exercising in the Training Heart Rate Zone for more than 20 minutes. This is the intensity of exercise that will give results for improved heart and lung fitness. The Training Heart Rate Zone measured in beats per minute (BPM), is calculated by; TR=65% to 85% of (220-age).
Muscle system health can be achieved by monitoring diet, exercise intensity and exercise format. The soft tissue muscles in the human body use chemicals to produce energy. There are 3 basic energy systems that operate in muscles, ATP, lactic acid and oxygen energy systems. Each of these energy systems will be developed through the activities in these programs. Muscle hypertrophy, muscle mass versus fat mass, oxygen carrying capacity and recovery will be discussed further in these programs.
Skating at an above average
level of awareness, energy and confidence is skating In-the-Zone.
Different bodies respond
in different ways to in-line skating. By isolating body parts with
different exercises over a period of time the skater will learn skills
and tricks that once seemed impossible.
In-line skating is a leading form of exercise in Australia due to the fact that so many muscles and joints in the body are engaged in the movement in a low impact fashion.
You can join a Public Program
or customise a program for your club or group of skaters. The cost
is approximately $6 per person per session for a 6 week program at 2 sessions
per week for a group of 15 skaters.
