I'm doing something I shouldn't and going right into x-step/hop while doing form practice. Just curious to try a couple things.
I'd definitely like some input on this. It seems like it takes me forever to get that left knee inversion compared to pros. Theirs goes in right before or as the right foot touches down, mine does not.

You are leaning back behind your rear leg too far/off balance and your foot is leading your butt. Hershyzer 2.

So I should be leaning forward more on the left foot of the X-step?
If I'm just doing things from a standstill, or the hershyzer off the wall I can definitely feel the weight forward of the left foot pulling. But if I take any steps or a hop I lose the feeling and end up behind it.

Yep, need more rhythm in your footwork like a dance move to maintain balance. More vertical hop than horizontal.

Watching these back I think a smaller step with the left would do wonders...
Also if I go back to focusing on planting that left foot perpendicular to the target I can feel falling forward, but the downside is it's harder to get good hip rotation away from the target that way.

Rear foot needs to be angled back away unless you are really pigeon toed. Should feel like falling backward/butt first to target.

I'm sure it ends up being angled back some. Kind of one of those things where how it feels and how it ends up actually being are different.

Way back on #95 there are some slow motion throws of me where I am coming over the top and I'm certainly not getting good hip rotation loading. But those were throws where I was paying attention to the left foot and I could feel kind of falling forward in ways I'm not getting now.

NEWer - stuck on back leg




I think if I could fusion dance the ideas on these two it would look a lot better.

The angle is sort of tough on those newer videos too. Straight on from behind (on in front) or straight on from the side is the easiest to tell what's going on.

But it looks like you lose the rear leg leverage on the newer, like the weight is on your toes instead of loaded into your rear hip. Probably outside the posture too but it's too hard for me to see that.

Yeah not ideal on the angle and now that I want to go out and take a video trying a couple tweaks it's super rainy.
