Hello my name is Dmitri Olympiev and I teach
at Pines Ice Arena in Pembroke, Florida. You can reach us on the web at www.www.pinesicearena.com.
Now this time I’m going to show you how to do backwards crossovers. This exercise
teaches us how to move backwards on the ice around the circle. I’m going to put my arms,
twisted again they’re not straight, I’m going to bend my knees, make a swizzle keep
my foot up, cross. See it. Swizzle, up, cross. When I skate backwards, I always look backwards
to the inside of the circle, this way I can see where I’m going better. Now one thing
to keep in mind is when you start learning this you have to get the cross, for that,
you must pick your foot up and then down. Now later on the crossover becomes more advanced,
you don’t have to pick your foot up anymore. We’ll be right back.
