Coach told me to:
a) wait after the 3-turn so I get a longer LBI edge
b) keep the R shoulder back after the 3-turn, partly to help get the longer LBI edge
Therefore, new checklist:
- Shoulders – i.e. check L shoulder forward AND R shoulder back
- Check – i.e. wait on the LBI edge
- Together/level – i.e. bring the arms in together and level
Those three on their own helped me to land to forwards really easily. Keeping the R shoulder back and checking after the 3-turn seems to help me quite a lot more than rushing through it as I had been doing.
When changing, imagine that I’m hugging a barrel with both my arms as well as my R leg. This seemed to help!
GETTING A LEVEL ON A SPIN
Coach said that I could get a level on my spin by adding a hop. So doing back camel into back sit, and then coming up with a hop on to back upright spin.
Also try doing back sit into back pancake. And back sit into alternate position with R arm grabbing L blade and L arm up.
