As everyone knows, I am rehabbing a Spine Injury and a Right Meniscal Knee Injury
So, while I have still been on the ice and training (maybe not entirely with doctors approval) I have been careful.
Over the past week or so. Since the last competition I have realized that I am losing a lot of muscle. More then I should have.
Even sitting and standing has been constantly hurting.
In order to skate half an ice, I am out of breath and my legs are trembling from the pain.
So 27/11/2019 I have filmed a bunch of on ice videos in order to examine what needs to be fixed and how it can be fixed.
So the first videos I filmed were:
- Outside Edges (with knee brace)
- Inside Edges (with knee brace)
- Cross-Rolls (Key movement for dance and freestyle)
- Upright spin
- Combo Spin
- Thompson Spin
- Flying Spin
- Waltz Jump
- Salchow Jump
- Waltz-Toe Combination
- Salchow-Toe Combination
- Toe-Toe Combination
After I went and I did the stroking elements (first 3 on the list) without the knee brace to be able to show a comparison.
I gave the videos to the Therapist building my program.
Our goal is to;
- Get higher jumps
- Get higher spins.
- Strengthening the Body
- Getting Cardio Up
- Reducing Inflammation
- Get better quality stroking
We still have not set up the off ice program. We are waiting to make the decision if I can do it without the gym or if I should register at the gym.
The program will take a few days to be set in place. But when it is, I will be able to share it with you guys.
It will go with 4 hours a week on the ice (for now) and a 4 hours a week off the ice (for now).
I am excited to see it and to be able to follow-up with the progress.
