i was reviewing video of myself doing dry drills in front of a mirror and i noticed that my back leg is bending as i shift my weight, but once my hands break it stabilizes and begins to drive. Is this correct?
I’m not positive on this so I hope Dick will come in and say something, but I think thats fine. Here is Grienke from the stretch and his back leg is still bending as he shifts his weight, but then stabilizes like you said. Just make sure your knee doesn’t collapse past the toe of your shoe.
is my back leg collapsing if it isnt reaching full extension and is bending during weight shift? (my knee is in line with the toe of my shoe at its biggest flexion angle)
do you have video? ill look at it and tell you what I think. take everything I say witha grain of salt though man. I’m not positive on this but I know a ton more than I did a few months ago.
Not having the back leg get fully extended could mean you are collapsing but I can’t tell without video.
Also, if you go frame by frame on Grienke then you can see that his back leg stops moving and stabilizes when his stride leg is coming back down from his leg lift.
How do you guys go frame-by-frame on these YouTube videos? I gave up posting there because I couldn’t do it. Our own web page allows me to upload HD videos that the kids can go fbf. But I would like to do that here on the forum, but most of these videos fly by.
I’m pretty sure you can’t go frame by frame on youtube. You can download realplayer at real.com and it lets you download youtube videos so that you can slow them down in a video editing program or any other program.
