Changing the order of my check list.  Start with the head (so I don’t have to think about the head twice).  And then do “edge, edge” to hold the LBI longer.  Doing this, I consistently landed to forward but on a RBO edge as opposed to doing a forward edge then 3-turning out of it.  So that’s progress?


  • Head – i.e. on RBO before the 3-turn, make sure the head is looking over the R
  • Shoulder BLADE – i.e. R shoulder forward, L back and keeping tension in the L shoulder blade
  • Edge, edge – i.e. say “edge, edge” in order to hold the LBO and allow it to curve to the left rather than being too straight
  • Cross/pull – i.e. cross the feet and pull the arms to the R side


Check list went better when I thought about twisting the upper body to the L side (into the banana position) when I hit the toe pick on the LFO.  So:

  • Leg
  • Wind
  • Look
  • Outside/crease
  • Twist (on hitting the toe pick)
