Preferably Gracie Gold!
You see those arms?!
They’re firm, but not too bulky. I WANT!
So I’m here to give you a few exercises that our Olympic Stars go through in order to go for that Gold.
But before that check out their typical schedule:
4:30 am: Wake up, get dressed, and eat a light breakfast.
5:30 am: Arrive at the rink to do off-ice training and jumping.
6:00 am and 6:45 am: Skate and practice on two forty-five minute freestyle practices.
7:30 am: Leave the rink and head for school.
8:15 am to 2:30 pm: Attend school.
3:00 pm:: Return to the rink and do more off-ice training and jumping.
3:30 and 4:15 pm: Skate and practice on two forty-five minute freestyle practices.
5:15 pm: Take a ballet class or take part in an off-ice work-out.
6:00 pm: Eat dinner.
6:45 pm: Do homework.
8:00 pm: Go to bed early.
Looks like a lot of cardio!
FitTip Exercise #1: Cardio!(Did you see it coming?)
So, twerk it on that treadmill as much as possible!
If not the treadmill Ross suggests Sprinting. A typical rink warm up of freestyle skating is like doing sprints for 4 1/2 minutes. So you pick!
FiTip Exercise #2: Pilates!
Yup, Pilates keeps the core muscles strong and a strong core is the basis of any athletic movement.
FitTip Exercise #3: Three Way Lunges.
That’s front, side and back!
These help you get low and create ankle stability!
FitTip Exercise #4: Plyometrics!
You can do these many ways, but I think the best way(I did this the other day and my legs were so sore) is jumping on top of a raised step and then jumping off!
The last, but not least most awesome Olympic Exercise is…
FitTip Exercise #5: Pull Ups!
Pull Ups work your large back muscles to help with running speed, improved posture and increased metabolism because the back is made up of large muscles.
Whoa. Intense, but I want to be Gracie, I mean look like Gracie!
