Check and Check – Another Spin Pyramid Update

When I am not running my revamped freestyle program at the rink, I’ve been furiously trying to check off more boxes on Coach B’s spin pyramid.

I finally got to check off the 20 revolution forward sit spin, the 10 revolution camel spin and the 6 revolution flying camel spin. Well, I am pleased to tell you that I can check a few more things off now: 6 revolution back camel, back sit difficult variation, difficult entrance to a spin, difficult forward sit variation and a forward camel difficult variation. Whew!

Remember, video evidence or it doesn’t count! I sent these to Coach B for verification, and she happily approved these to officially count. That means that I can check these off the pyramid!

So here is the video proof…

6 revolution back camel:

Back sit difficult variation:

Difficult entrance to a spin and difficult forward sit variation:

Forward camel difficult variation:

So that leaves only 1 more box on the bottom row of the pyramid (back sit for 15 revolutions) and 2 more on the next row (upright difficult variation and back camel difficult variation). I’ll work on getting those checked off soon.

How is your spin journey coming along?
