Wintertime means ~fun~ seasonal activities, like ice skating and sledding. But the not-so-fun part about winter is trying to figure out how to not fall and break every bone in your body when you inevitably hit up the rink with friends.
So in an effort to help lessen gigantic bruises and broken bones, we asked Michael Weiss, figure skater and host of the Colgate Skating Series on ABC, to break down the steps to falling ~safely~.
Step 1: Lean slightly forward and bend your knees.
Step 2: Place your hands on the ice to break your fall.
Step 3: Lift up one knee and place your hand on your knee for support.
Step 4: Use both hands and knees to stand all the way back up.
Let's watch it all together now:
