Editorial Reviews

Rogelio A
I’m the most improved soldier in our District, thanks to the awesome strength training information I got from this book.
Diana E
I am a skating coach in Britain and I have read and referred to this excellent book 'Weight training for Skating' in my training for years. The skating specific programs I've used for my teams have helped us improve dramatically.
Jean P
I am a recreational skater and have been taking group and private lessons for about 10 years. This book has helped me organize my weight training workouts and to understand which exercises developed which muscles. Although skating seems to involve mostly the legs, maintaining good posture, specific arm position, and torso rotation are just as important. So ensuring that I develop all muscles is a tremendous help.
