Skaters, if you are unable to train as consistently as you would like, whether due to summer break in skating or an injury, VISUALIZATION is a great tool to improve your skating.

Choose a jump you are working on. Visualize yourself landing that jump clean on 1 foot, 3 times in a row.

Now try to SEE IT THROUGH YOUR OWN EYES instead of from a birds eye view. This helps to make it feel more realistic, like you are actually completing the element.

Next PAIR AN EMOTION WITH THE VISUALIZATION. Imagine how you would feel if you went out and landed that jump on the ice 3 times in a row today! Try to FEEL THAT FEELING while you are visualizing.

Practice before bed 5 nights per week.

I often tell my skaters that pushing outside their comfort zone will feel scary, uncomfortable, even weird!....but if you PUSH THROUGH THE DISCOMFORT you will experience real growth and confidence on the other side! This is when the magic happens!

Keep going! You got this!
