- In-line rear brake
That is, with your feet parallel, push the foot with the brake forward, with the toes slightly upward, and let the brake grind to the ground. The harder you press the brake to the ground, the faster you can stop. Remember that the center of gravity must be lowered and kept between the feet, not too forward or too backward. ABT is actually no different from ordinary brakes, but ABT is easier to learn, as long as you stretch your feet forward, you can brake.
Second, the eight-character brake
- Inner eight-character brake
It is suitable for gentle and long downhill. Since it takes a long time to brake, if you use the T-brake, your feet will be sore and numb, so it is used to maintain a constant speed and avoid accelerating too fast. It can also be used to brake when the speed is slow. Open your feet, the board is in the shape of an inward squat, your feet are bent and squatted low, your body is slightly forward, and your eyes are looking straight ahead. Since the feet are eight inside, they will slide inward. At this time, the feet can be pushed outwards, and the brakes can be slowed down. At this time, the quality of the roller skates for women and the strength of the legs are tested. It takes a lot of practice to apply the braking force evenly to both feet.
2. Outer eight-character brake
The inner eight-character brake is to place the center of gravity at the back, and the outer eight-character brake is placed in the front
3. After the eight-character brake
\/(The direction of travel ↓), the body leans forward, the toes are not inward, but the heels of both feet are inward, and the muscles on the outside of the thighs press down hard.
|__–>, one foot is dragging behind, | stands for free foot, ___ stands for your skating foot, —> is the forward direction.
It is to replace the function of brakes with free-footed wheels. First slide forward with one foot, put the free foot of the rear foot straight and vertically behind the sliding foot, similar to lunges, the center of gravity is completely placed on the skating foot, raise the chest and reduce the abdomen, keep the upper body upright, the wheel of the rear foot and the front foot keep vertical and lightly When it touches the ground, it still slides forward, but because the rear foot is perpendicular to the forward direction, the wheels rub against the ground, and it will slowly stop. Beginners learn to brake slowly. The distance from the beginning of the brake to the complete stop can be a little longer, about five or six meters. After stopping, slowly increase the strength of the rear foot and increase the friction force. The direction of the force of the rear foot is downward and forward. . Before braking, most of the center of gravity should be on the skating foot, and a small part is on the free foot. The more the center of gravity of the free foot is placed, the stronger the braking force, and the less difficult it is to maintain balance. Later, the script was straight, and when it touched the ground, it became curved. Both feet were bent, and the planes formed were perpendicular to each other. During the braking process, the whole body should remain still, from the calf above, it is still relative to the roller skates. When slipping on the road and encountering a slightly steep downhill, due to the balance between stability and braking, the feet need to be bent. Beginners often unconsciously turn into “crab steps” and draw arcs on the ground. “Slip or go around”, this is mostly because too much weight is placed on the free foot or because the angle between the two feet is greater than 90 degrees, which involves the problem of leg strength. Most of it should be placed on the skating foot. The free foot is only responsible for scraping the ground. Don’t put the center of gravity on the free foot in the end, and it will turn into a back slip. As for losing the center of gravity, practice slowly. At the beginning, lift the free foot without touching the ground, then practice the skating foot lunge, which is to bend the knee slightly, then stand up straight. Repeat this, and after the practice is stable, slowly reduce the free foot to the ground. The foot touches the ground lightly and grabs that frictional feeling to slowly increase the force of the free foot.
