Left turn weaker than right... how to improve?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi... my right turn is decent but my left one is not the same. I seem to have trouble with edging my left leg/foot while turning left which causes a tiny pizza shape as I initiate the left turn.

 

How do I get rid of this? Any drills?

 

Thanks.

I am fairly new so others will be likely to be more helpfull , But.....  It just takes practice , I had the same problem , I just had to learn to commit to the turn the same as the other way ,And I adjusted my boots for bow legged ,Which helped everything a little

New,

 

If you had video we could answer this question more definitively. Otherwise it's going to take the 1000 words thing to get close to giving you a good answer.

 

Some times this is caused by alignment issues where you need an adjustment like getting your left boot canted to lift up the inside part of the left foot so that the edge will "catch" better. Some times it's caused by the movements you make and you need instruction to fix it. Some times you just need practice like doing garlands where you are making left turns over and over again as you cross a slope.
