Double Salchow
« on: January 22, 2011, 03:39:20 PM »
wonky landing and hand down :P hope it goes better tomorrow morning, maybe land double toe ( being optimistic here). i can get the rotation for loop and flip aswell, but my weights either too far forward or too far back :(

GOOD JOB O0

Almost look like you over-rotated it and was thinking about a triple for a second ;D

Also extra marks for going thru traffic O0

It wasn't over rotated but needs to be checked by free leg extension being more positive and coming through more, MUCH more core strength needed to stop you collapsing on landing as you have a but of a lean in the the air and that is exagerated on landing. Also take more time on the back inside edge (a send or so). While you are gaining some pre rotation from the 3 turn, it is also giving you less time to balance so that you are straight in the air. The jump is going up but not covering any ice. It needs some distance and in this you should gain a straighter and longer landing edge instead of the rotation pulling you round on a tight edge that instigates to collapse through your right side
I don't believe in the no-win scenario. There is always a way to have your cake and eat it!!!

Wow! Well done - Nice height and good rotation there.

One thing you might want to go over is the entry, your arms were not properly checked before you jumped which may have led to the slight lean during the rotation.
