There is no limit to perfection, and any athlete isKnows. Even if you are a good skater, the advice of professionals will be helpful, especially if it's about braking and your safety. There are several ways to brake on skates - one foot or both.
Everyone try it, improve it, because only being confident you can master complex tricks without fear and develop a high speed of skating.
Proper braking on skates requires quiteLarge energy costs. If there are no sudden obstacles before you, you do not need to brake sharply on the rink, slow down with smooth circular motions. Just stop pushing and moving forward. Slightly tilt the body of the body to the right or left, and point the feet slightly sideways. So you slowly, with a large amplitude, start to turn, and the track from the skates will draw an even large circle on the ice. This movement significantly resets the speed and smoothly leads to a complete stop on the ice.
If you are moving at high speed, and youYou need to brake sharply, fix the stop with two feet. Directing the skates to the right or left, bend the legs in the knees. Aim the body weight back so you do not fall face down on the ice. In this case, the shift of the center of gravity will be directed to the sides of the skates. The blades cut into the ice due to a sharp turn to the side, the glide stops.
A stop with a turn is made at the expense of onelegs. Quickly glide over the ice, lift one leg, bending it in the knee. If you need to turn to the right, then bend the left leg, and vice versa. Raising the left leg, turn the blade of the ridge perpendicular to the movement. Straightening your leg, place the blade on the ice. The more power you put into this movement, the more stop speed will be. By braking your left foot, you will automatically turn to the right side.
If you are moving at a low speed, slow down"Plow". To do this, bend your knees and bring them together, pointing the ends of the skates to each other. Thus, the pressure is evenly distributed between the ribs of both skates, and you will slowly stop.
If you ride not on hockey, but on curlySkates, you have the opportunity to brake the "nail files" of skates. You can do this only at low speed, otherwise you risk falling forward and breaking your knees and face. Just put one foot on your toe when moving. "Saw" will crash into the ice, creating additional resistance, and you will stop.
