When I used to coach and train teenagers, that truth really does work. You can have an incredible and powerful squat, and not jump worth beans.

If you goal is athletic.. play the sport as much as you can and supplement the athletics with the workout ..
There is still something to be said for training the muscle groups that you are going to be using the most often to help strengthen them and hopefully cut down on the potential for injury. It might not make you play the sport better right off the bat but not being injured helps you play the sport longer and get better at it.

I agree. Those support muscles and the extras need to get worked. .. I am just saying.. "if you wanna skate better, skate more"..

the best ballers all played 8 hours a day.. they didn't hit the gym..

I hope you enjoy being home, Ari! And I myself am a believer in the notion that a little venting does us good

It's the eye/hand/body coordination. No amount of pumping iron or working out will build that. If you want to get better at something that requires to to move in certain ways to accomplish certain things (shooting basketballs, hitting baseballs, thunking people with sticks), then go out and do them and build the most important thing of all: muscle memory.

As for how I'm doing? The whiplash back to reality is throwing me into a deeper funk then before. It's a slide into depression that's hard to stop, so tonight I'm going out to play some board games with some friends and hopefully have a good time.

Yup. I do that. 2 hours, 2X a week. And at the end of it, my back is seizing on me. So what I need (and I did see Derby reply somewhere down the line, but have to go look) is something that will be supplemental and help the muscles that are so seriously out of shape work properly.

I need a place where I CAN skate more. I was told not to skate in on wet pavement. So .... living on the Wet Coast I need to find other ways to strengthen muscles while we're enjoying the liquid sunshine...

Just to address this because I see someone else has responded to it as well - I already skate "well-(ish)" its not my skating skills I need to work on - those are coming along nicely.

Its the "OMFG I CAN'T MOVE" pain in my back that is fairly common (i've been told) when you first start skating that I need to work out.

If my back didn't seize - I'd happily skate through the cardio issues, through the cramps in my shin, through the numb feet... but my back seizes and I need to find a way to prevent that.
