"There is no substitute for effort. If someone with superior natural ability permits you to outwork him, you can defeat him. If you permit someone of lesser skill to excel you in effort, he will likely excel you in accomplishment. Always play up to your full potential in every endeavor. The greatest extravagance of all is to waste human potential."

Joseph Robbie

NFL Owner

 

Bouncy trouncy Tigger the Tiger skiing!!!

The keys to proper mobility and fun!

 

I admit that I am one of those teachers who taught many many people to ski with straight arms, but I am here to correct the mistake that I have made and help you to unlock the potential that is awaiting you. What is amazing is that as I have been traveling these last three months, I have noticed a proliferation in this problem. I am seeing a lot of people like you who have great glide, pretty good posture, but are still rather unstable. I have found a simple way to help you ski with more power and great control! I call this the "Tiger the tiger mode."

Much like Tiger the tiger, I find that great skiers have great Posture and Glide and a great Power Band but still exhibit a looseness and lightness in all joints without any loss of stability. They are bouncy and trouncy on the water and that seems to provide tremendous control that I know that people like you will benefit from!

I noticed this when I started seeing the number of straight armed skiing on the rise. I found that these same people where unstable when going into one foots, surface turns, and slalom. I am going to outline how you can get into the ultra fun "Tiger the tiger mode (TTTM)."

Let me first say that this will be helpful in the following areas of your skiing; all front and back positions including toe-holds and one foots, all surface turns!

To launch TTTM there will two keys; proper flexing or bend, and BREATHING!!!

Let me start with one of the best tips I can give you in this format....BREATHE early, breathe often, and breathe continuously! I recommend that you make a journal and checklist to consciously check to see if you are breathing in all the different skills that you have accomplished in your barefooting! I am constantly amazed but not surprised to see the dramatic effect this has on people. I have quite literally watched a barefooter's entire skiing demeanor change after successfully applying this to their skiing! By the way, the most successful breathing is done by breathing in through the nose and out through the mouth!

Once breathing is established you should find that you already feel a little more sassy in your skiing, but let's take this one step further by completing the TTTM transition!  It is critical to the perfect position that you have a slight elbow flex in all front and back positions. To do this properly you should not be increasing your grip squeeze or flexing your bicep.

I sure hope you are paying close attention to this because this is POWERFUL! In the front position, get into your great posture, then simply push your chest out slightly more while flexing your elbows. If this is done properly, your elbows are close to the side of your body and the chest is slightly ahead of your elbows. If your elbows have a gap of more than a couple of inches between them and your chest, simply close this by splitting the difference by 50% chest expansion and 50% elbow squeeze.

On the back position, there should never be a gap between your wrists and the top of your butt! If you are one of those skiers whose handle is lower than the top of your butt, then you will not be able to enjoy the pure ecstasy of TTTM! To correct this, simply bring the handle in towards your imaginary belt line across your back so that the handle sits on top of  you butt. You should be in a slightly chicken winged position. The key here is that you have a slight elbow bend that does not exceed 45 degrees, the handle is on top of  your butt, your grip is relaxed, your elbows are pointed up and not out (otherwise it is impossible to achieve great posture), and that you are breathing!!!!

Now that we have achieved the TTTM, you should have greatly increased stability in all skiing. To really take this to the next level that would most likely make Tigger the tiger light headed with joy, practice being bouncy and trouncy in ALL of your positions both forward and backwards; two foots AND one foots.

I honestly believe this will bring you one step closer to skiing like a champion while being able to have fun while on the water. Remember, never let TTTM interfere with the basics of Posture and Glide and The Power Band!

Let me know how you do! I am expecting a miracle for you and I hope you are expecting one also. I hope we get to ski together soon!

Also, please help me out and forward this to as many footers or even potential footers  as you can. This will help to make this newsletter a BIG success! We want everyone to have a GREAT chance to achieve their own miracles!
