Overview

The speed skater is an exercise that targets the quads. It is performed by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and your toes turned out slightly. Bend your knees and lower your body until your thighs are parallel to the floor, then jump up and swing your arms forward as you extend your legs. Land softly and repeat. The speed skater is a great exercise for building strength and power in your quads. It can also help to improve your balance and coordination.
