HOW TO BUILD A SLI.DEBOARD
Instructions:
1. Glue the Formica o r plastic sheet to the
plywood.
2. Drill 3/8" holes in the board. Start 2"
in from the end and 2" moving toward
the center of the board (see diagram).
Seven or eight holes should be enough.
The holes make the bumper of the
slideboard adjustable for skaters of
different heights.
3. Drill 38" holes in the 2"x2" wood strips
to match the holes in the board.
4. Was the Formica or plastic thoroughly
to ensure a smooth, slippery surface
for easy gliding. The surface will need
to be re-waxed frequently.
5. Bolt the wood strips onto the board.
6. Glue the foam padding onto the wood
strips. You may also glue a strip of
carpeting over the foam padding for
extra protection as skaters hit against
the bumpers.
c-C.---
I n the training video, "Champions Train to
Win," there is a significant section on
training on a slideboard. The video does a
great job of explaining and demonstrating
the proper technique for using a
slideboard. The benefits of a slideboard
are t o increase power and improve stroking
technique.
.
Materials needed:
One 4'x8'x3/4" sheet of plywood
One - 4'x8' sheet of Formica or plastic
Two - 4' sections of 2"x2" wood stripping
Two - 4' lengths of foam padding to glue
on wood strips
Four - 3/8"x3" bolts with washers
Carpenter's glue
Furniture polish or paste wax

GENERAL SPORTS NUTRITION
All the sports nutritionists tell us that there is na one "maglc food" that
will make you feel stronger and bster, train harder or compete better.
It Is W e though that the foods you eat and when you eat can affect
your athletic performance. Some of the following general sports
information may help you eat to achieve a better performance.
TQUcan
endanger your" health and performance due trs lack of fiuids.
To prevent yourself from becoming dehydrated, drink lots of liquids
before, during and after strenuous exercise. Water is always safe
before exercise; water and/or dlluted sports drinks during exercise;
water, sports drfnks or juices after exercise. To tell if you have had
'adequate fluids, simply monitor your urine. It should be clear colored
and not dark,
QUICK ENERGY
...
Eating a lot of sweets and/or sugary foods for "quick energyHbefore
you exercise may hurt yaur performance, ARer you eat any kind of
concentrated sugar like dried fruit, juices, soft drtnks, candy, etc., your
body secretes insulln, which is a hormone that canles the sugar from
your blood into the muscles. The combined effect of insulin with exercise a n cause your blood sugar ta drop too low, You may
experience low blood sugar and feel lightheaded, shaky, tlred and
uncuordlnated.
Ar you need an energy boost prior to exercise because you are hungry,
you don? have to eat sugary foods far energy. Sugar Is already stored
In your muscles in the form of glycogen. A better choice may be a
slrnple snack of crackers. or bread..
The best option for quick energy Is to prevent the need for an energy
boost! Simply eat better prior to training or cornpet-lng ... Fuel up
rather than trying ta run on fumes!! I f you allow yourself time to
digest your food and store It In yaur muscles, you will be ready far
tmtnlng or competltlon. You wlll'already have adequate energy!
PRE-COMPETITZUN MEALS
...
I f you are planning strenuous morning exercise (such as competlng in
an early morning race) you will.fue1 your muscles best if you eat a high
carbohydrate meal the night &fore. By eating a hearty amount of
pasta, potato, rice, noodles, bread and other carbohydrates for dinner,
you will have tlme to digest the food and store it in your muscles as
glycogen. I f you were to eat a big breakfast prior to the race, the food
would sit undigested in your stomach and "bounce along for the ride."
This may cause discomfort or unwelcome "plt stops!" Sometimes
athletes like to eat a small snack within 1-2 hours of training or
competlng. This keeps them from feeling hungry and can help
maintain a normal blood sugar level. Some popular choices include
cereal, bread or crackers.
RECOVERY FOODS
...
You should eat carbohydrate rich foods \
1 1-2 hours after hard
exercise to replace the glycogen that you burned off. That is when
your muscles are most receptive to replacing this fuel. A simple afterexercise snack might be orange juice and bananas - rich sources of
not only fluids and carbohydrates but also potassium and vitamins.
Raisins, dried apricots and potatoes are additional potasslum-rich
foods. Remember that carbshydrates quickly refuel your muscles and
prepare you for tomorrow's training or competition. I f you are
tempted to choose a greasy burger with French frles for your recovery
meal, try hard to choose Instead thick crust pizza with vegetable
toppings, or a dinner that focuses on potato, bread, vegetables, juices,
etc.
