It's particularly annoying about the Biellmanns;I don't know anyone who likes the huge amount we have in skating now. As an occasional thing, fine, but every skater, every routine, including the pairs & dancers?

Back in the day of the ladies spiral sequence, there must have been some level awarded to "B" spirals. Almost every ladies program had them, and most of those spirals were UGLY looking.
Same thing today with the layback. Every lady has this appended to the layback to gain that extra level. It is just not a natural or even pretty for a lady to hoist her leg backwards over her head.
It has got to be ruinous on a lady's back and hips.
When I think about Plushenko's back issues, I remember that he has routinely done a Biellmann type spin - not just the pounding his back must be taking from quads.
