Week 7

A training lesson and a Blog (an explanation about the app) are at the bottom of this page

We think we have another nice addition for the coming weeks. With our Duo app you always have the lessons at hand. It is easy to place on your phone. We are convinced that a learning process benefits from many variations. We do not (yet) have a place in this app for ALL variation and "background", we will continue to put them on the site.

FURTHER: When we start the lesson it remains important that we “check in”. How are you. Is everything clear. What do we want to see from each other. Are there any questions. We can skate together again in small groups and that is also so cozy at 1,5 meters.

For Beginner skaters this week it is about Pushing off and then with more and more Power (force x speed). Attention is still being paid to a "kink" in the knees and navel and we hope for more and more stability as you shift your weight from one leg to the other. In the 2nd part of the lesson we will also give your stamina a little more attention.

For the Middle Groupers and Advanced skaters it's about this week Rhythm and then keep playing with Power (force x speed) . Of course, attention must continue to be paid to Stability if we want to skate more efficiently and effectively. In the 2nd part of the lesson we will also give your stamina a little more attention.

Under the lessons and in the “what does the trainer say” the mechanical principles are further elaborated and you can also read a little more about this week's sauce Power (strength x speed) and Endurance . If you want to give the exercises more explanation, you can watch the videos under the following buttons.

Novice skaters: Last week we paid attention to Stability from the theme of Rhythm. Now it is attention for Power from Deposition. More power gives more speed but is more difficult to perform and requires a more stable body.

Intermediate / Advanced skaters : Last week we paid attention to stability from your Attitude. This is important to be able to put enough weight against the ice in the right direction. Now it's attention for Power and playing with different Rhythms. This should result in better sales in terms of timing (moment) and direction.

This approach demands a lot from your movement performance (possibilities). All your movements must always be transferred to the ice in a controlled manner. Power is very close to Stability but also Agility if you play with rhythm. Everyone has their own optimum. Your own Frequency in terms of power per stroke.

In addition, we will make the assignments in the second part of the lessons a little longer this week. The conditional aspect of skating is addressed.

This week's FITNESs sauce (conditions to be able to practice)

Power(force x speed)
The ability to move something. A combination of power and speed. You can move a lighter object with more speed.
You need strength to move your body. If you have more power than another skater who is as heavy as you, you can give your body more momentum (power = force x speed).

The ability to efficiently change/adapt the position of all body parts to the situation.
This agility is needed in every part of the skating stroke.

Endurance : Being able to sustain an activity.

Can you sustain an assignment for a long time? How tired do you get. This makes whether you can practice a little longer and a little longer and/or more practice makes you learn it faster.

Mechanical principles, (which of course always apply.)

Principle 5: More weight/pressure/force against the ice returns more power from the ice. This applies to both the straight and the bend.


Stability and posture are important to be able to put enough weight against the ice in the right direction. To be able to supply power, there must be something to be able to supply power for a long enough time. This should result in proper weight transfer (timing and direction).

Principle 7 : Look for an optimal frequency
