h-Position Clap Drill (Page Lipe)

In this short video, International coach Page Lipe explains the h-position clap drill.  She uses this drill with skaters on loop, flip, and lutz jumps and she explains it doesn’t work very well on salchow (and toe loop does not have an h-position).  As she explains, the drill helps skaters create more height on these jumps and it also helps them get to a position that allows them to more naturally cross the feet and get into a tight rotational position.

For the drill, Page has skaters clap their hands under their thigh in the h-position.  One of Page’s skaters does a nice demonstration with single loop.
