2/9 - Trail arm swing – driving back to much? Ok for fix set up a few Hs and go over with the trail arm on Hip. Alternate
So keep hurdles close together and focus on left lead for x amount and right lead for y amount.
2/16 - Position of knees on
run up and through. When
2/23 - Another thing to look
3/5 – Work on the trail arm means not having the trail arm going back to far. Consciously think not having the arm go back on several sets of several hurdles. On both arms. As Yoda would say we must unlearn what we have learned.
Best way to unlearn any thing is to practice over a few hurdles a ton of times, and thinking about not doing this or that.
