We created this warm-up for figure skaters to use before any fitness or practice session, anywhere - whether you're doing an at-home workout or getting out on the ice.
Warming up is essential for getting the most out of your training. A proper warm-up will help to prevent injuries, prepare your body for full range of motion, and reduce muscle soreness. It also gives your mind an opportunity to get "in the zone" and focused prior to your session.
