What is "Lock and Load" drill?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Does anyone know what "lock and load(?)" drill is?

 

My daughter has a bad habit of turning with both shoulders and hips open, using mostly inside ski.  Was told (and shown) to use this drill, but I'd like to understand it myself.

 

TIA

Never heard of it. I hope it's not like what we did in my fraternity days. I doubt that would help her skiing any.

 

What did you take it to mean? Maybe if you describe it, we'll know it by another name.

Not familiar with this drill, but it sounds like they are trying to get her to tip the outside/both skis up on edge to get them carving (lock) and pressure them to control the turn (load).

My poor form - I completely forgot about this request.

I think it was a drill to help get the edges set better, especially with the outside ski.  Had too much weight on the inside ski, with leading tip (by a lot), torso was facing way outside.  (race team)

I'm curious too.  I've found references to the drill without descriptions, but it is mentioned in concert with a double pole plant.  Not very helpful, but that's all I've found.

to much weight on the inside ski usually means the outside ski is leading us though the turn.
