An investigation of off-ice strength and power measures among pre-elite to elite figure skaters : predictability of on-ice performance
MetadataShow full item record
Background. The evidence suggests off-ice training as a viable mechanism to improve on-ice jump performance;5-8 however, research is lacking conserving the collective predictability of strength and power measures in figure skater’s on-ice jump performance. Purpose. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship of off-ice strength and power and on-ice figure skating jump performance. Methods. A cross-sectional study design examined off-ice strength and power measures of nine competitive pre-elite to elite female skaters (14.3+1.8 years; 158.5+5.0cm; 48.9+7.16kg) and predictability ...
