Speed skating training has athletes travelling around the track at speeds of forty miles per hour at unbelievable angles.

Strength, agility, power, and precision are all a part of this sport. While much of the actual training is done on the ice practicing speed skating drills, stair workouts help condition speed skater Olympians for this event. 

Ramona Braganza's Olympic Speed Skating Tip:

To train like a speed skating olympian, Include one day of stair drills in your weekly routine. Try running, double stepping, hopping on one leg, jumping, double jumping, or even triple jumping steps. Stairs are also a great way to torch calories if your goal is weight loss. 

Yes Wellness Supplement Recommendation:

The Yes Wellness supplement recommendation for training like an Olympic Speed Skater is Spirulina. Spirulina is superfood that is a natural algae. It is very high in protein and high in nutrients. Other benefits of Spirulina include:

  • High in iron
  • High in vitamin B12
  • Has gamma linolenic acid (GLA)
  • High in chlorophyll
