Axel checklist

Did a dozen good axels within my first 30 minutes using the following mental checklist:

  • Upright = imagine someone has pulled my hair and therefore body upright
  • Shoulder = check the L shoulder is forward
  • Toe = take off from my L toe pick

I ALSO need to think about keeping my R arm back – rather than bringing it forward then moving it back again.

So the new checklist really should be: Upright, shoulder, R arm back, toe.

However, when it came to showing my coach my axels, it all fell apart. Oh well.
