Power Twist training tool will help you develop your skating technique
- Increase rotation speed
- Cheated jumps?
- Train your arms and core muscles
- Correct upper body positioning
- Stronger landings
- See when skater achieves correct position when light is on
- Strengthen and train muscles at the same time
Creating correct upper body positions with the Powertwist assists in faster rotations and stronger landings.
There are two resistance bands which attach with a clip to the back of the Powertwist. The bands can easily be shortened to increase resistance. Depending on technique and what you are trying to accomplish the bands may be placed in different positions. The power twist will come with two single strand cords. You have the option to purchase additional double strand cords, for additional resistance.
Skaters often struggle at the end of programs to complete elements with the same correct positioning, speed, quickness and power they had at the beginning. By targeting skating specific muscles with the you train these muscles to perform longer. As you become stronger you can add a second band to make it more difficult (practice on your own risk!).
See the Powertwist video complete with demonstrations of how to put it on, positions for jumps, spins, basic elements and moves in the field.
