Frankly the day after I workout on the synthetic I find my movements on the ice to be more explosive because you have to work harder on the synthetic.
Like I said it was just personal opinion and what I have found from experience. Skating for 3 hours on normal ice still wouldn't give you the resistance you get from synthetic ice. If you feel it is something that works for you and what you teach then that is awesome.
