    Lisa I've never seen it broken down like this before....amazing!

    Carlesa This is great... hope there's more good info like this on the site!

    Daphne This was helpful....and although I am not coaching a double axel at this point in time, I certainly can use the three main tips from Chris for my student's single axel. Which will, in turn, make their double that much easier!! Thanks!

    Gaye Ohanian good tip on keeping weight behind skating side to get more power on take off. Thanks for the video.

  16. September 6, 2011 at 6:26 pm

    Rita Fantastic info, great analysis...It is very helpful to see the step by step break down!

    Angie Great technical! I saw the takeoff, thought she could have gotten a bit more air time with the speed, but thought the gather was pretty good, off on that one! Thank you!

    Beth Wow! Thank you for the opportunity to learn all of these great tips and to help my skaters. My skaters aren't as advanced as this but it will help tremendously! Happy you found me!

    Audry these analyses are great. I'm not working on this high level jumps, but the extreme attention to every detail of the body is very helpful, especially when you watch several jumps and different skaters doing different combinations of the same things wrong.

  22. September 6, 2011 at 6:27 pm

    a.notterdam love all of the analyses and tips. this really helps and benefits the kids I am teaching. please continue with this good work.

    Diego It really looks like she`s trying hard to make the rotation with the right shoulder! And it`s causing a huge lean to the outside of the circle (left). It is helpful to leave that right shoulder aligned with the right hip, and not pushed forward on take off, in order not to cause a lean to the left in air position and landing. She needs to feel like she`s jumping up first with no rotation, and then rotating on her way up. The upper body needs to feel like it pauses a little bit on the take off, letting the lower body incite the rotation, it will put her in good position with her head aligned with her right landing foot. The shoulders need to feel like they`re sort of resisting the rotation. it`s the legs that do all the jumps. It also really looks like she can land it though! Keep it up, it`s looking good!

    Diego Actually I just watched that again and the right shoulder is not so out of position, it`s more the whole torso itself, her whole right side that is pre-rotating too soon and extremely forcing the rotation, causing the lean to the left. But it`s the same correction, getting that feeling of jumping Up first and then rotate. Also it would be very helpful to ask her what she feels when she tryes her double axel, and have her tell in details what she intends to do during each part of her take off. If she says that she`s trying to make the rotation with her right side and putting a lot of force, then this would be exactly the case. If not, it could be the accentuated curve on the forward outside on the take off. Most precise triple axels and big double axels the torso moves more on a straight line (even though the skating foot is going on an outside edge, but the upper body goes almost straight forward). Hope that helps!
