First tries! Plenty of work left with my way too stiff hips but it feels better all ready

That is a really wide stance to start from and you aren't able to shift efficiently and finish upright balanced on your front leg.

Your left arm is still behind your back when you plant and it's going out around you instead of in front of you.

Thank you!
This is where I am at right now. It feels like I gained some speed... also trying to get my rear arm more in front of me.

You need to see yourself with camera behind the tee. Your body is landing on your front leg like the player on the left, everything is stuck behind the front leg to the right and has to go around it. Note how everything is more stacked upright and centered on front leg on right.


Striding/swaying way too over toward the left teepad side into the plant. You can't catch yourself in dynamic balance/posture on your front leg because your body is so far over to the right teepad behind your front foot/hip. Your front foot is moving away from you instead of under you coming into the plant. So you jam into the front leg and vault around it, instead of pivoting on it upright and centered.

Your hips are moving like the AM vs PRO in the first vids in link. You are losing all hip depth/butt pressure on wall, on your rear leg as you push/stride over toward left teepad side.

hmm..
I have tried to make some corrections. Like not turning away to early. I am also trying to get a better feeling of CoG, and I feel like adding a little pumping motion in the x-step helps with that. The throw feels more smooth and more centered in some way.

You are moving everything too leftward and impeding your momentum and having to go around yourself, instead of moving everything more targetward and out of the way of momentum. Simon is more extreme than most other top pros on the leftward move, and you are moving way more leftward than Simon does. You actually get close to Simon in #4, but you aren't turned back enough to land properly on your front leg.

The side view shows your front leg collapsing with your knee going past your ankle early in followthru. You aren't turning your front femur and pelvis/shoulder/head back enough coming into the plant to land in dynamic balance to brace and clear/pivot on your front hip. You should be landing on your front leg like you want to reverse direction away from target or a skier in slalom or turn and that bracing upright on front leg clears the hip and sends the torso into rotation.

Check the images in post #5 in particular:

Hello again hehe.
I am concentrating on my x step movement and I believe some things is starting to click. However, I make the mistake of falling/tipping over into my brace more than "jumping"/shifting into it, which leads to form issues further up the chain... my shoulders is moving forward in a bad way for example.

But it is starting to look better! (I think), which makes me very happy, so thank you again.
Maybe I will be able to shift better into my brace once I get more reps and when my new x step feels more natural

Your balance is always behind your rear leg and your right shoulder not loaded back inside/leveraged forward of rear foot. You need to maintain forward leverage just like walking, or running. When you want to run faster you lean more aggressively targetward, not away from it.
