Back to (Spin) Basics
I’m feeling a bit of déjà vu. I had a spin lesson just last week, and my coach wanted me to go back to spin basics. She wanted me to execute things like:
- 15+ revolutions in a forward camel spin
- 10+ revolutions in a backward camel spin
- 20+ revolutions in a forward sit spin
- 15+ revolutions in a backward sit spin
Sound familiar? In fact, it seems eerily similar to the spin pyramid from my old coach (see image below).
My coach’s philosophy is that if I can consistently achieve these number of revolutions in basic positions, then I should be able to execute difficult variations.
Message delivered. Time to go brush up on my basic spins and try to achieve these goals!
That’s 60+ revolutions total! Man, just thinking about it makes me dizzy!J
This is definitely going to be a challenge for me! Wish me luck!!
