Jump Axel

How much of this word! Especially when it comes to jumping in figure skating. Sometimes to win you need to make one single jump, and you are a champion! Today, and in future articles, the theme of figure skating jumps will be heard. As you know, there are jumps from the list – there are only six of them. These are jumps that have a certain value in points. They are divided into costal and dentate. And there are not jumps from the list that are evaluated in the program components. Starting from this article, every three to four days I will tell you about one jump, its phases and typical mistakes when learning an element. Well, interesting? Then let’s start!

Rib jumping

Axel – 1W, 1A, 2A, 3

Axel. The only jump that is performed with forward movement, therefore, it does not have an integer number of revolutions. It is considered the most difficult in figure skating. A single axel – one and a half turns, a triple – three and a half turns. Axel in four and a half turns so far no one performed. Named after the Norwegian skater Axel Paulsen. The triple axel is usually lower than the double one due to the need to quickly group together.

Take-off – running back to the left, on the right foot back – out with the transition to the left foot forward – out.

Push – a stopper gear on cross over and single, a stopper costal on double. Mach with both hands and free foot in the direction of movement.

Flying – grouping – hands are clenched in fists and pressed to the chest, the left leg is pulled to the right. Landing – back and forth on the right leg, arms straightened to the side.

Common mistakes:
Take-off run
1. The lack or excess of speed. In the first case, the repulsive force method is usually used with the curvature of the jogging arc and the swing of the free leg around the vertical axis; in the second, the links of the body do not have time to fix in front of the collision arc, which will subsequently lead to uncoordination of actions in other phases.
2. Excessive inclination of the hull forward or deviation back from the vertical axis on the collision arc.

Push

1. A strong curvature of the jogging arc in the direction of rotation, in which the forward forward movement is violated and the coordination of the parts of the body occurs (typical for 2A). 2. Early twisting of the upper body relative to the lower, ie the shoulders are turned forward even before hitting the repulsion arc. 3. Visible rib stop before jumping 1W, 1A. 4. Swing movements with arms and free legs are not performed simultaneously.

Flight

1. The lack of density groups. The farther the links of the body (arms, left leg) are from the vertical axis (body, right leg), the more difficult it is to twist the required number of revolutions. 2. Tilt the chassis forward before ungrouping.

Landing

1. Landing on the whole horse. This leads to additional stress on the ankle, knee and hip joints and tipping over. 2. Excessive tilt of the body forward at the moment the ice touches the tooth, leading to a fall forward. 3. Untimely ungrouping (torsion) at the moment of touching the ice, the shoulders look forward or even to the left.
