Figrue skating is a sport that uses practically all of the bodies muscles. Of course, all of the leg muscles are used the most because of all the jumps and spins. The arm muscles are used frequently due to having to hold them up and all of the falling which a skater will put their arm out to catch themselves. Falling alone can contribute to muscular arms. The abdominals are also used in figure skating because of the spins and jumps where having a strong trunk is a necessity to be a good skater. Hope this helps!

Figure skating is one of the hardest sports around and requires exceptional skill

Ice skates are sports equipment. They are used in hockey, figure skating and speed skating.
Ice skating requires you to be very strong. Many muscles are used, i know since I am a figure skater myself. You have to have a very strong core, and....well basically a really strong upper body. Your thighs, calves, and glutes must also be strong, as well as your ankles(not a muscle but they are definitely used!). These muscles help you jump, hold you upright in the air, and keep you strong while spinning! Hope this helps. <3 :)
there are about 16 muscles used .
