The axel jump may
be the hardest jump for many figure skaters.
Once ice skaters master an axel, the double jumps come quickly.
- First do some back crossovers or
do a forward inside mohawk.
- Next glide backward on an extended
back outside edge.
- Step forward and bend the skating
knee as if you are about to do a waltz jump and bend your arms and
- Bend the skating knee and the free
knee as you swing the leg forward.
- Bring your arms forward and jump
off the ice at the same time you swing the free leg forward.
- Pull your arms tightly to your
chest and cross the original skating leg over the free leg.
- Rotate one and one-half
revolutions in the air.
- Land first on your blade's toe
pick and then glide onto a back outside edge.
- Bring your arms out and extend
your free leg back as you land the jump.
- Hold the landing for a distance
equal to your height.
- Do several backspins before
attempting to do the axel jump.
- Before attempting the axel jump,
do the following "axel walk-through exercise": step up and
then do a short backspin and then pull out as if you were landing
- Practice waltz jump-loop
- Practice axels in your shoes off
- Don't allow the arms to go
higher than the chin or over your face.
