Very frustrating trying to fix this problem as it's not a natural position and I think I have a more neutral center ingrained from dance. Additionally, I learned the skill incorrectly without realizing, so now I have the fun of trying to fix it. :sheesh:
    It's getting better since I started privates. Painful process to tear things.apart but I now see signs of improvement!!! Before I did not even know the difference between inside and outside edges in this spin because until recently, I never hit the outside edge lol. Over skatingforums people also gave me extremely helpful grills to build muscle memory and I warm up backspins with it

    My problem with backspins is I'm more likely to get too far over the outside and not be able to spin at all.

    Anything that involves baring the patch of fabric between the legs for all to see ... blurry or not.
