Initiating movements from the hip is paramount to successful technique. You will need a strong core to get the most out of it though.

If you've done back squats in the gym before you should be able to emulate the feeling (or at least recognise it). When you are in the lowest position of your squat and you begin to push up again you should feel an immense pressure in your hips (where your quads meet your abdomen). That is the kind of pressure you want while skating :)

Thanks Andrew for the tips. Haven't really done back squats at the gym though some of the plyos drills share similarities. Will keep it in mind next time out.
