    type of spin

    Broken Leg Sitspin. What does it look like? I do them but I have no idea what it looks like. I have been actually trying to learn a regular sitspin but my coach has been seeing my sitspins and reseached what I was doing and says that it is a Broken Leg Sitspin. I've got 6 rotations doing them and now she's has me doing them in combination. I'm only working on my prelim FS. What the heck?

    Anyone got a picture of a Broken Leg Sitspin? Where can I find a pic? Maybe you know where video of one?

    Basically a sit spin with the free leg toe turned in instead of out, there's a small video here [url]http://www.sk8stuff.com/f_recog/recog_s_brokenleg.htm[/url]

    Thanks, for the video. Now I see what I was doing.

    That video is a very bad representation of a broken leg sit. The free leg should be bent and turned out to the side with the knees close together. The inside of the free foot should be parallel to the ice.
