This is a great video and it highlights the teaching methods that have helped Kori Ade turn Jason Brown into an Olympic figure skater.

Figure skating tips website iCoachSkating.com has just announced the next complimentary figure skating video it is offering figure skaters and skating coaches. The video is a presentation of on-ice jump exercises from Olympic figure skating coach Kori Ade. The video provides basic and advanced exercises for figure skating jumps. The video can be found at http://icoachskating.com/kori-ade-warm-up-exercises-for-jumping/ and is available to all visitors for approximately the next 10-15 days.

Kori Ade, coach of 2014 US Men's Figure Skating silver medalist and Olympian Jason Brown, shares a series of warm-up exercises she uses with her skaters, including Brown. Jason Brown demonstrates the exercises in the video and offers a glimpse into some of the training methods used by Ade and Brown to help him develop into an Olympic athlete.

In the video, Ade runs Brown through a series of exercises that are intended to get a skater ready for jumping practice. In this case, Ade is warming up Brown for work on the triple axel. Many of these exercises can be simplified for skaters working to improve their singles and doubles.

Ade uses exercises that encourage natural rhythmical movement to work on a skater’s jump timing. She feels that the rhythm developed early in a jumping session will carry throughout the practice session. By taking the time to perform these exercises, Ade feels her skaters are more productive during their practices when working on specific jumps.

Ade also likes exercises that are “bilaterally symmetrical,” meaning they rotate both ways and are even in shape, movement and pattern. In the alternating half-loop exercise, Ade has Brown rotate in both directions and work on checking in both directions, focusing on correctness and quickness.

She also uses a dynamic flexibility spin exercise to work on hip flexibility. Ade also uses a lot of inside axel work to develop the check needed when doing combination jumps where the toe loop is the second jump in the combination. Ade also offers advice about general awareness in figure skaters and the power of keeping corrections simple.
