Lysacek said he's ready: "I'm feeling really good. From a physical standpoint I'm stronger than I've ever been." Lysacek said he's often in the gym longer than he's on the ice.
"Skating is a brutal sport," he said. "It's about strength, quickness, endurance and timing. It encompasses every element of physical strength."
The quad, especially so.
"It's such a glamorous thing to talk about since it's such a dangerous trick and it's taken our sport to a new level, but a clean program is what skating is about. My focus is on getting that quad in but also doing a clean program and not losing any points along the way."
Lysacek, who turned 28 Tuesday, is working on his free skate to the music of "Samson and Delilah," the same program he planned for last year but never performed due to the injuries. He's also in the process of picking music for a new short program and will meet with choreographer Lori Nichol early next month.
