I'm trying the short fins as well and though still adjusting think they'll be helpful for "feeling" increased drag with loss of balance. I too started weight training and core machines. I'm not...

spinal alignment

What drills do you recommend particularly for improving alignment between hips and back? I'm assuming skating is number one. Others? When you have a problem with a break at the waist any special...
