Coach TomZ held an online class and invited Vincent to be a special guest:
"I am going to live stream a jump class 3-22-20 for figure skaters and coaches around the world who are stuck at home without ice to practice on or a large space to workout in."
Mentioning Vincent in second clip of IG message repost.

Thanks to Vincent's Japanese fan for capturing the live stream and sharing some clips. Vincent demonstrating the jumps, wearing a cute beanie with a pom pom top.

Satomi Ito posted photos of the costumes she designed for Vincent on her IG account:

First two pics are the FS costume (Cloud Atlas), showing the intricate weave pattern
Last pic is the SP costume, which I absolutely love - "I Will Wait" happy moment

It's such a shame that these costumes did not get a chance to really shine this season. I hope they will keep the FS.

Latest IG post from Vincent: doing some sun bathing, hiking & face planking in the Colorado wilderness:

I've missed Colorado so much I decided to come back and be one with nature again. Also swipe to see me planking on a plancc 😳😳😳

Glad to see him enjoying the trip to Colorado! Keep up the good spirits and stay well!

Caveat: Just my two cents, but I doubt that he still has access to the barn rink.

I am not in Colorado, but I believe that the state (understandably) has announced new restrictions since Mar 24 (when he posted barn video on Instagram).

^^^^^The barn ice rink clip was probably taken on March 20th, when coach TomZ's IGS showed Vincent breaking in his new boots at the barn (mentioned in post #1340)

Chinese fans have kindly shared a "transcript" of the 2nd half of the talk, since Vincent's mom answered mainly in Chinese. The English translations were done by non-native English speakers.

Screenshots from TomZ's World Class Warm Up Webinar with Vincent

Another Sharp4Sports webinar with Tom & Vincent is scheduled on Tuesday, May 26:
Let's All "Band" Together: Off-Ice Jumps/Exercises w/Resistance Bands
https://www.instagram.com/p/CAVTNDaDWxT/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Vincent's warm up jump on TomZ's IG:
Here is a warm up jump that will help you maximize height and activate your posterior chain. It’s a good “basic” jump to do as you return to the ice. It’s not a Salchow or a walley. I call it the “Zhou” jump. Use the comment section and tell me what you would call it. A special thank you to @ryanfskates who suggested I share this after learning it in my @sharp4sports class with @govincentzhou on triples and quadruples.


A masked Vincent showing an awesome jump. Yes, he still got it! :thumbsup:
