Short Arms

I’ve been working on improving my layback spin and think it’s made some progress. However, I’m still having issues with the haircutter variation. I’ve finally come to terms that my arms are too short.

Clue #1 that my arms are too short: When I wear a regular sized jacket, I have to fold up a good 2 inches to make a cuff. Then the length fits me perfectly.

Clue #2: When I attempt some yoga/stretching poses, I cannot reach my foot or touch the ground like a normal person does.

Clue #3: I just can’t reach anything.

It’s OK. I’ve got short arms and I’ll live with that. But it’s still funny to see myself struggle on grabbing my boot and blade in this spin attempt!

    It actually looks pretty close. Maybe long legs makes up for short arms?

      I wish, Jo! I have short legs as well so I’m doubly hosed. 🤣
