Lesson with Coach A today.
Double Salchow (drill)
Helped when I focused on:
- Toe – i.e. taking off from the L toe
- R side – i.e. focusing on getting my weight transfer to my R side
- Foot under – i.e. pushing the R foot under the L foot
This seemed to make me fairly stable and I rotated quite quickly.
The key will be trying to get the foot under (i.e. crossing) while IN THE AIR rather than landing and then crossing.
Getting into camel: focus on R OUTSIDE EDGE
Transition into sit: bring the L arm forward; then allow the body to come a little upright before bringing the R arm around and forward to balance out the R leg.
Spin exits (in general)
My landing position has been a bit twisted, with the L leg too far behind the body. The L leg needs to be out to the side more and further up.
Back spin exit
Coach noticed that, when I’m exiting my back upright, I almost seem to be stopping on the spot before exiting.
Instead, think about allowing the RBO circle to widen and then push the L leg back while keeping the body upright.
