Analysis of Single Flip for Double Flip Development (Trevor Laak)

Jump specialist Trevor Laak analyzes a single flip for a skater interested in working on the double.  Trevor provides a full analysis of the jump, but focuses on the “rotational jerkiness” caused by excessive shoulder pre-rotation.  This is a common problem for skaters who are mastering the single flip in preparation for the double.  Many skaters have a very difficult time feeling or understanding how the rotation is created by the natural movements and flow of the jump when initially learning the single.  And this causes them to turn the shoulders to “feel” rotation for the jump.  This typically must be eliminated or greatly reduced before learning the double since excessive rotation on the single take-off is usually magnified or exaggerated in the double attempts.

Another video by Trevor will provide (to be published shortly) additional tips and insights regarding how to fix or minimize this problem.
