Abstract

Eighteen junior elite figure skaters were filmed while performing axel and double axel jumps. These same skaters were assessed for strength of the shoulders, knees, and hips at multiple angular velocities using a Cybex II system. The height of the jumps was significantly correlated with the strength. data. Knee extension at 240 deg/sec and shoulder abduction at 300 deg/sec were shown to be the most important strength parameters in determining the height of the jump. This information may be useful for designing strength training programs for figure skaters.
