I've been skating for quite a long time but I've always struggled with my upright spin more than anything else. On occasion I've done good ones (so i know its possible!) but the majority of the time i'm unbalanced, travel a great deal and not really in control. I've recently watched myself on video doing them and my technique is pretty terrible - my knee isn't bent far enough on the way in, i start the spin way too soon so my entry edge is too short and shallow, and i can't seem to stand up straight to save my life! (I break at the waist and my shoulders are all hunched).
I know what i'm doing wrong but i can't seem to fix it. Do any of you know of some good exercises that could help force my body to do it properly? Any help would be appreciated!!
