|: Does running affect power in skating?
I fear that I cannot provide a scientific answer to that question. I'd say that running has a positive effect on the cardiovascular system and on lung capacity. Probably also a positive effect on some muscle groups needed for ramp skating. But not all. I find that I also need the filet and abdominal muscles which I do not improve noticeably by running.
: Thats what I really want now! I have been thinking about starting to run some, probably interval type of running. I dont want to develop too many slow twitch fibers.
You obviously know much more about muscle groups and types than me.
