What muscles are used when figure skating?

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!
