Exercise – Forward Crossovers

What to do when you need to turn on the ice? 

The skater can turn by sliding on both feet, but this is not efficient enough, and by turning the skater loses speed. When the skater moves on the ice in a counter-clockwise direction, and skates on both legs, he should push off the ice with his right leg, backwards, then place the right leg forward in front of the left one, and cross the right leg over the left one. This is called forward crossovers to the left.
