haha, the jump tracing thread inspired me to post this. my technique on my lutz is MESSSSSSSSED up... it makes the triple way harder than it should. when i pick in..... the weight from my skating side lifts up. so when i take off... there is a huge gap between my feet. a perfect lutz should have the skating foot come pass right beside the picking foot on the takeoff here's my lovely drawing of the ideal lutz vs my lutz: http://i51.tinypic.com/4s1p1e.gif ANY SUGGESTIONS for what i can do to get from mine to the ideal?? i think i'm hopeless as i've been trying for like 5 years to change the technique and can't.. but i'm always open to hear new things! thanks!
