TERRY, EDDIE: Thank you very much for your help.
TERRY: Now that I think about it, you are 100% correct.
I do have lateral instability due to over rotation. The "wild kick" probably comes from the legs wanting to help stabilize the stroke.
And this is happening in spite of the fact that:
a. I start each workout with vertical kicking (150)
b. I do plenty of skating drills for balance + learning how to kick from the hip (and get the legs to draft behind the torso)
EDDIE: I would love to have flexible ankles and also more flexible shoulders.
If you or other people in this Forum know of any stretching exercise/drill to achieve that.... that would be great !
