Tips for Side Layback (Kim Ryan)

Spin specialist Kim Ryan works with a skater on her side layback. In the desired position for this spin, the shoulders should be vertically stacked. But even many skaters who have good flexibility to the side may have problems getting this shoulder position. Kim offers a great way to address this. By doing a stand-still exercise that highlights a full range of motion and then putting the free arm behind the back and pulling it down toward the ice during the spin, skaters can quickly get comfortable with the desired shoulder position.
