    Pectoral muscles and rotating jumps?

    Hi, I am currently working on the triple toe and triple Salchow and I was wondering if the pectoral muscles help to rotate faster those jumps.


    If it's better to work with other types of muscle to get the triple jumps.

    I wish you were doing me your comments

    What type of muscle should we work for sucess those triple jump ?

    The pectoral muscles aren't overly important when discussing faster rotation. Most important in the upper body would be the biceps to pull in. Having exceptional core strength is necessary, and strength in the hip adductors, gluts, and quads in the lower body is necessary. Of course, you need to have good strength in other muscle groups for the correct takeoff and landing.
