USST works on this incessantly!!! This comes from an Olympic athlete with many top 10 finishes in recent years from the US Ski Team.
Absolutely hips in front of feet in certain phases of the tuen and as the terrain steepens. But this comes from closing the ankle joint (and not your toe pull up) you must move your entire system forward from the ankle. Like Ms. Shiffrin says Knees to skis. It is her Mantra. The steeper the slope the farther forward you must be to stay relitively perpendicular!
Seems as though the OP is one of these stand straight up from the middle of the ski Rec. Skiers from all the posts. Maybe I am wrrng about that, but good luck with no knee rolling (Try to tell Bode this
) and no hips in front of feet.
Here is Hirscher!
I'm gonna work on frames 5, 6, 7, 8 tomorrow. Thanks, Jamt.
He's trying to get away from Lifety, who recently joined the KGB. IN frame four he sees his get away, the road sign pointing towards kitzbuhle. He begins committing to the sign post and positions himself to go in the opposite direction. Because he is moving downhill his hand will need to slide down the post as he stabilizes his upper body so his 'legs whip around from centrifugal force. Once pointing in the direction he wants to go, he lets go and balances. He needs to predict the force that may be in contrast to the angle of gravity vs his landing and he will contort to make things go where he wants to go when he lands. Actually, he'll start contorting based on a prediction before he lets go of the post. If sucessfil, Ligety will be 'late and continue down the hill as Hirscher heads towards Inga's chalet and a hot toddy.
I wonder if holding the inside arm back in frames five and six have sommething to do with his prediction?Edited by Tip Ripply - 12/8/15 at 11:06pm
