An Axel Update

It’s been a while since I’ve posted an Axel video so I wanted to show you where I am in my journey. It took me about a year of doing all the preparation exercises before I landed my first one, and I’ve been tweaking it ever since.

In fact, it took me 8-9 years to finally learn how to cross my legs, so making these little improvements has not been an easy feat.

Since working on my double salchow, I believe my Axel has improved as well. It’s benefitted from the tight air position I’ve been attempting in the salchow. And my legs are finally crossing so it looks less “adult-like” with the storked, side-by-side legs.

Take a look and let me know your thoughts!
