Ice Skating as a sport has two main disciplines: Figure and Speed Skating.
Figure Skating is performed individually, as a double or as a group where performers attempt jumps, spins, lifts and death spirals in the hopes to earn the highest score while Speed Skating as the name suggests, requires competitors to race over various distances trying to win with the fastest time.
Training for all ice-skating sports requires lots of time on the ice, practicing the movement and technical aspects of skating. Speed, balance and skill are all key components of competitive ice-skating.
After practice, it is important to supplement with a high-quality protein source, this will help maintain and develop lean muscle mass as well as speed up recovery.
