Waisteering Revisited - Page 25  

post #721 of 739
Active pelvic rotary is only half the battle, although I agree that a ton of power resides in the core.

Yes, but it is quite different than what

you imagine. WaistSteering weights

the inside ski and stacks the inside

hip almost vertically above the inside ski--

so the transition from one turn to the

next is far less dramatic, and accomplished

by simply turning the waist in the

other direction.

Oh I imagine it well. Here, have a look at this http://www.epicski.com/t/121999/ted-ligety-ma

Funny to me how someone said Ligety

"is holding his counter." When you watch

the video I created, Ted says he rotates

a lot-- the opposite of what coaches teach.

 

No one can figure out what he's doing,

but I point it out succinctly in my video.

He is "rotating" (self-described), and

he is advancing his outside ski.

 

With that said, there are also plenty

of times when Ligety is clearly using

counter, angulating, and dropping his

hip. But not in this video:

 

 

Funny how people see what they want to see.

If I take waist steering lessons, will I end up with Tia Chi Belly like Master Fu? :duck:

(sorry couldn't resist)

Ghost, what I've noticed of Tai Chi masters

is that they develop such amazing physical

abilities that they don't seem to mind hauling

around a spare tire.

Berwang Ski School and Hotel Singer in Tirol Austria say, "Waist Steering and Race Carving are the hip and happening things on the slopes today!"

 You are claiming Walter Falger ,the Berwang Ski School  and Hotel Singer as affiliates of your "Waisteering" heavily marketed, Tai chi derived technique that advocates rotating the right side of the pelvis counterclockwise to turn left, and rotating the left side of the pelvis clockwise to turn right?

 

That seems to be what you are claiming, just trying to confirm that you intend your plain words to have the same meaning as I am taking them to have.  Because I don't think what that brochure intends to convey at all, the way I read it.

Incorrect. I am not claiming them as affiliates.

 

Berwang Ski School and Walter Falger are

making a claim about Waist Steering.

 

There is only one Waist Steering.

Or, just possibly, they are not native English speakers and therefore translated the concept of "turning using the waist of shaped skis" from their native German somewhat awkwardly.  :dunno

Let me know if you have any trouble reading this:

I'm pretty sure AUSTRIANS in general know

what they mean when they say WAISTSTEERING.

Tommy, the extensive list of references has me bogged down on reading that abstract, I'll have to get back to you and Rick (if he's still affiliated with Waist Steering as he was in the days of its most active marketing on here) later on these very important concepts.  Thumbs Up

So I read that impressive 1 page PDF...all I need to do for waiststeering is weight my uphill ski more whilst I rotate my pelvis in the direction I wish to turn in order to achieve a World Cup carved GS turn, is that right? (Along with the mindfulness and breathing)

 It sure seemed back in the day like there was some sort of arrangement between the waist-steer crew and EpicSki as a site.  Nothing that I was aware of was announced openly (I could have missed it), but given everything, to me that's the way it seemed, unless current EpicSki management wants to say no arrangement was ever in place.
