Help Please! Non-Slide Leg Question
« on: December 13, 2006, 09:39:43 PM »
I took the summer of '05 off and this last year, my non-slide leg, right leg, has been just hanging back, straight back, in my release and followthrough.

I want to let it swing behind and to the left, but am clueless as to why it is not.  What should happen to allow my right leg to automatically swing behind and to the left?

I am not posting as good as I'd like to.

Thanks!!!
Dave

If your trailing leg does not come around naturally, your might bend your upper body forward during the release, not keeping it upright (enough). The trailing leg is to counterbalance your upper body movement, so a stright backward leg hints at some source further above.

That very likely is part of my problem; your answer makes sense.

I have been trying to stay more upright and bend my knees further; I will have to revisit this idea when I find time to practice - hopefully over the holiday week.

Thanks!

You're welcome - if you can post a video of yourself, further help would be easier. I hope it is a hint in the right direction

I am planning to get broadband at home, was going to do that this week, but my power supply just went out; will need to fix & upgrade the PC before I can get a video posted.  Bill Gates I ain't!
