today we're going to talk about how to get faster but before we do that I would like to introduce my friend Alice trappler professional power skating instructor worked many years to help players improve their speed in order to skate faster you need balance balance comes from bending our knees if you see here auntie's are showing 90 degrees and is knee bent he's also having his knee in front of his toe this helps the player to create momentum craig live with no effort the next step here to create speed is a long stride and if you see here his leg is completely extended he has pushed from the heel all the way out to the toe his knee band is still 90 degrees his arm is swung back to create power in his upper body a little bit lean and then he pushes out with the other leg all the way back from the heel all the way to the toe is armed he swung back ready to create power and what we're really looking for here is his stride length and power as he pushing in stride 45 degrees you're seeing each push he is making maximum effort and main on the glide so he skates as efficient as possible to save his energy and to be as fast as possible now just to show you similar when you skate backwards you're trying to do the same you're trying to extend your leg as you push completely all the way out 45 degrees full extend you remain in me Vance 90 degrees and at each stride making it the maximum effort to push for the most power to skate as efficient as possible you

    One can watch the fastest skater -competition in all star game and notice this isn't the (whole) truth about skating. The fastes skaters like McDavid or Kapanen don't skate like this.

    I mean, yeah, he’s generating a lot of speed but hockey isn’t played in a straight line.

    Are you sure about this? If you watch the NHL fastest skater competition you clearly see that this is not how they skate. I see a low and quick recovery where the skate lands somewhere under the shoulder. They also move their arms side to side, not forward and back. He´s not pushing off at 45 degrees, it just looks that way because he´s moving forward. He´s actually pushing off straight to the side. Check out Braden Point in 2018 fastest skater competition. Beautiful biomechanics.

    First let me say that I have personally worked with quite a few first round NHL draft picks and for many years have made the teaching and communication of individual hockey skills a passion. While there are very good elements about bent knee and stride and leg extension, I have to say the arm positions for hockey is a disaster …. very incorrect ….maybe good for a speed skater but not for a hockey player.

    He did skate when his a little boy right because his the worst he didn't even put his arms to the side but instead he put them front which increases speed but I'm still not mean

    This is the best way to generate speed if you’re going in a straight line, definitely would recommend having the chest up in a game situation

    You know nothing about skating. McDavid barely bends his knees at all when doing crossovers.

    Awesome demonstration! Thank you 😀 what profile do you believe is the most optimum to achieve this technique? Been playing around for few months but have not crossed anyone with the correct knowledge. Just found info on profiling the front 70% of blade which I am excited to try with the Toronto 2 (9"-15"). I'm 6"1 165lbs and can move my legs like Bruce lee and aspire to be faster/more dynamic than mcdavid, Brazil, t hall.
    Need. Little help 🙏🏻 thanks

    One thing is just move quicker keep your feet moving and when u come back in for a stride do it as fast as possible

    His arms should be more in a forward motion not as much side to side to generate more speed
