      Greg Fossett maybe next time I need to do an all backwards FB Live. What do you think?

        The Footer’s Edge I know that I would enjoy. My single biggest struggle has been going from the ~ 7’- 8’ line off the boom to behind the boat. I think the biggest issue (beyond being impatient) is NOT turning my feet down / in and coming up duck footed.
        You are not alone in saying the lack of mobility with the next brace is an impediment. My buddy Carl Rubidge who used to work with Ron Scarpa feels the same way about it.

    Can hear you fine….lookin’ good.
    I never foot without my neck brace….especially backwards.

      John Berry I understand. Do you fall regularly backwards? Do you feel safe?

        The Footer’s Edge don’t fall regularly anymore..but I feel safe ‘cuz I got my brace on.

    Lane; you know my story, for the rest, I am a TRUE believer in Lane’s methods, I have skied/learned with Lane and some of his disciples, I have even used his methods to teach my 3 girls and a bunch of other people to barefoot (BTW his methods work for beginner skiers, slalom and wakeboard too – I have literally taught 100’s of people to SKI (on ski’s) using his method) all safe and with no falls. It works, it really does. I would say though that Lane forgot one really KEY component, and that is NO SAVES (BTW, this was one of my hardest things to learn early in my training). I did exactly as Lane said, tons of sets in the glide, 100’s of sets at really slow speeds, I was SUPER comfortable and very few falls. I was transitioning to one foots, starting to get the hang of back deeps – I was confident. But then the day came when I forgot the rule, if something goes wrong – LET GO, instead I tried to save it – the ending was catastrophic, long story short the injuries were career ending, but I got my miracle that day and God gifted with me a wonderful surgeon and I came away very much alive and still able to walk. But that’s not the message, the message is DON’T TRY TO SAVE A FALL and if you are going to ignore that rule, than I would suggest you acquire all the safety equipment you can, including a neck brace, probably a back board too. Way better advice is learn as much as you can from Lane and follow his advice – you can’t go wrong with that!

    Hi guys … if the problem is alredy there .. i mean bulged and herniated discs around your neck .. the best solution is called ALFLUTOP injection therapy for around 21 days … 70 bucks on amazon/10 vials .. that stuff is not only anti inflammatory but also can rebuild the cartilages

    • The Footer's Edge March 9, 2019 at 6:38 pm - Reply

      Diana Dorflinger thanks for the info but I have never heard of this before. I looked it up and it is interesting and sounds good. Are you expected to inject this yourself? Into a joint?

      • Diana Dorflinger March 9, 2019 at 6:47 pm - Reply

        Hi .. actually this is european product but all of my floridian motorbike racer friends are using it .. just as i did when i screwed up my neck about 4 months ago .. and it’s an intermuscular injection therapy so if u do have like worn out cartridges in your knee for examplec… you can inject it into the sorrounding muscles to yourself.. i also bought the needles + syringes from the pharmacy and i asked another skiing buddy to inject it right next to my spine at my neck because of course i Couldn’t reach it myself… + i took at least twice as much as it was recommended.. but since it’s 100% natural you cannot overdose it .. so i took 2 syringes/day .. for 21 days .. and it did work wonderfully since the herniated and a bulged disc was so damaged for a while the chiropractor didn’t want to touch it …

          Diana Dorflinger interesting. Since I am not a Dr., I will have to run this by our Dr. of PT who helps a lot of us CrossFiters to see what he has to say. Dr. CJ DePalma?

          • CJ DePalma March 9, 2019 at 7:56 pm

            Lane Bowers will Respond tomorrow. Remind me please

          • Diana Dorflinger March 9, 2019 at 8:06 pm

            Guys .. im pretty lucky because my doctor is very nice and willing to follow my rules … lol .. and i said sorry im not going for his prolo therapy because i don’t trust waking up my immune system + getting worse for a few days + it cannot rebuild the cartilages so efficiently as this ALFLUTOP .. and i trusted 10000% my biker friends who always break their bones and stuff on a regular basis lol

          • Lane Bowers March 9, 2019 at 8:31 pm

            CJ DePalma thanks 🙏

    Jeff Milbrath just had his partial hip replacement and started skiing like 4-5 months after that

      Diana Dorflinger good to hear. Are you saying that he used this AFLUTOP?

      • Diana Dorflinger March 9, 2019 at 6:51 pm - Reply

        Nope .. I’ve been using it … and Jeff had a partial hip replacement so that joint is not worn out anymore because it’s actually brand new 🙂

    Lane you are funny! Everytime I hear your voice or see you you pump my mood up and it’s instant flow of positiveness that goes right to me you’re a great figure to society I think my dad’s a little jealous as I’ve shown him the videos of you and Crossfit and you’re jacked even his comments were holy s***

      Carr Ryan thanks for the kind words. I miss you guys. There is nothing that brings me more joy than hearing that in some small way, I have brought some sunshine and motivation to you. Now, go out there and kick some ass! I believe in you

    Thanks for posting Lane. I put the video on CorrectCraftFan.com of my gf and we watched your post this morning. She had a little epiphany when you said “flex the feet” because apparently her teacher (me) never told her to do that. That particular video was probably her 3rd or 4th ever LL attempt and she was struggling with positioning her knees and handle so you were right, they were all over the place. We have a ski set planned next weekend with John Berry and she really likes the idea of going back to the 5ft line and ironing out fundamentals at low speeds before rushing back behind the boat. We’ll be tuning in for more tips and tricks, especially if you make good on Greg Fossett’s request for an all backwards chat. (for me, I never wear a brace forwards but am just learning backwards now and wear it every time out). Thanks again.
