I’ve decided to stop trying to do double Salchows and instead to focus on good technique.
So, new drill is to focus on crossing the feet in the air into a back spin. Some of the key points:
- After the 3-turn, wait the the LBI edge to come around
- Jump only when the LBI edge is nearly forward
- At the point of take off, lift the R arm into a V-shape and look through the V (i.e. look forward rather than around the circle)
- Take off and CROSS THE FEET IN THE AIR
So the focus is on crossing the feet, not height for now.
Aim: do this for enough weeks (or months) until I’m snapping into a nicely crossed position very consistently. And THEN try to kick the R foot a little higher into an h-position to get more height (and therefore rotation).
