Speed Skate With a Sweeping Stick

Here are 2 elite ski racers speed skating while making big sweeping movements from side to side with their sticks


NOTE:
-the athletes fighting to stabilize their pelvis and stay square with their hips and shoulders as they resist the rotation of the arms and stick
-the coordination of the arms and legs moving in sync throughout the exercise
-the fight to be light on their feet with each hop
-maintaining a low position
-attention to big, light hops
