It’s a nice day and a nice place. Let me try to explain my way of riding by video about Treading freeline skates. What different with regular way of riding is In regular way you do swing legs or clamp legs or swing your body like this The disadvantage of this way is It consumes inner thigh muscle which is very weak muscle so even if you practice a lot you still feel tired after riding shortly may be you can ride a long way totally but you can’t stand on deck for a long time Today we gonna talk about the way of treading We gonna avoid using inner thigh muscle during riding as much as we can How to avoid it just as its name implies it uses tread to ride not swing or clamp how to tread I split it to several steps to practice treading the first step is to draw a big circle to feel the feeling of treading and the feeling of propel with treading take regular stance as example draw a big circle clockwise no swing no clamping tread your feet backward tread your feet backward alternately you can feel that you’re using muscles like when you running or walking but not inner thigh but the propel power flows out ok after we done clockwise let’s do it anticlockwise put you weight backward and push your feet forward same, inner thigh is not doing anything at all you’re just using muscles like you are walking then you can feel power flows not tired at all after we draw the clockwise and anticlockwise circles we gonna make it straight You may not get use to it at first because switching your weight back and forth frequently make be feel dis-coordinate let’s have a try first push forward two or several steps get back to balance then push backward several steps and get back to balance then push forward several steps and get back to balance then backward slow down the frequency of switch your weight when you get the feeling you can make it a litter faster well, after you are more practiced make it two steps forward and two steps backward. this is a reasonable frequency it can take advantage of your weight shift combining the movements makes your weight keep in the center but your body actually leaning back and forth during your riding This is actually very efficient. OK. Till now, we’re done the first stage of treading. So. next. When you’re using treading you’ll find your inner thigh last much longer but still be consumed a little can it be totally avoid? the answer is yes definitely but how? the most important thing is riding on single foot you need to be able to ride on both of your single foot. no need to master it no need to propel with single foot no need to single foot slalom but at least you should keep on single foot for dozens of meters like this until stop ok. same for the back foot why we need ride on single foot because next, we gonna put all the weight on the pushing foot put 0 weight on the other foot This will totally get rid of your inner thigh. how to find this feeling let’s keep drawing circle let’s draw a anticlockwise circle like we did it before, lean your body backward and push your feet forward but what different is, this time, you gonna slow down a little bit put all your weight on the pushing foot and 0 weight on the other foot just gently bring back it this needs you to shake your body weight left and right you will find riding Freeline skates totally get rid of your inner thigh. it’s becoming more like walking it of cause not tired at all, right? next let’s draw a circle clockwise put all your weight on the pushing foot shake your upper body left and right Could you see clearly from this view? Actually no need to shake a lot just feel that 90% of your weigh is on the pushing foot maybe 90% in the beginning as the skill grows it becoming 100% well more than 90% is enough I think because next you gonna shake to the other side it’s a little like a cripple. (Here I exaggerate the movement) You will find riding freeline skates totally get rid of inner thigh. OK. well, next let’s make it going straight see how we go straight from this view two steps forward two steps backward. let’s change a view two steps forward two steps backward two steps backward two steps forward let’s combine them together no need to push a lot just make sure your weight is on the pushing foot will be fine so your leg actually doesn’t make a lot of push just put weight on it power is generated from your weight shaking so it feels very easy let’s see from here see if I shake my upper body a little bit after you get to the second stage at first stage you may push your foot a little bit out, right? no need for the second stage just put your weight on the pushing foot will generate the power if you want to go faster of cause you can push more harder ok. did I make myself clear?
