  • Do you enjoy falling on the ice and getting a wet bum? Flying sit can be a tricky spin to learn on the ice, so I always recommend starting on the floor first. This helps avoid unnecessary falling on the ice 🙌🏻 So get ready it’s time to spread your wings and fly 🐥 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
WHAT
———
Exercise: Flying sit takeoff
Skill Type:  Off-ice
Difficulty: Beginner +
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
WHY
———
Learn the technique safely
Improve height and tuck
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
HOW
———
A flying sit is an illusion of height, by tucking and lifting the legs it makes it appear as it you have jumped higher than reality. Of course the higher you jump the better 😉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
First you need to learn how to do a tuck jump. From stand still jump straight up scooping the arms, as you hit the top of the jump lift both knees up to the chest. Tap your shins and land on two feet.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
The only thing that changes for the fly sit is one leg remains in a pike position (straight). This leg should be the same as the leg you extend in your forward sit spin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
To help, step in to the jump and think of driving the straight leg up at the same time as you tuck the knee. This time though extend the arms forward. Land on the tucked leg trying to keep the extended leg under control. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
I’d love to see and share your videos of your flying sits on or off-ice in the story, so make sure you tag @coachhamish 💙⛸
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
TOP TIP
————
You can also practice the leg individually by isolating the single leg tuck or the single leg pike position. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀

  • Before we left for Italy 🇮🇹, I started learning how to do a loop jump! Getting on the correct edges for this jump is HARD! And the rotation is a lot more difficult than anything else I’ve done before. I haven’t skated since we left the U.K., but I’ll be back in a rink soon ☺️ I’ve still got a couple more videos from my last lesson to post and then I’m going to start sharing my new off-ice training. I’m a little nervous to share that publicly 🙈😂 Have you ever gone for a few weeks without skating? ⛸ And did you feel rusty when you got back on the ice?!

  • I decided to skip my session this morning to give a fair chance to my injured hip, so I couldn't bust this out on the ice today. Can we take a moment though...cuz I did this without stretching today 😭 the standing leg is the bad hip in case you were wondering.

  • So this is definitely going to be a “before” 😂 I kind of hate watching videos of myself because I look so much worse than I feel. 
I need a deeper lutz edge, more stable spirals, and spins that don’t travel so much. #adultsskatetoo #adultfigureskater

  • Outside edges have been my mortal enemy since I started skating, and this last month I’ve really been working on actually using them. It’s been slow progress, but I’m so happy there’s actually been PROGRESS! #adultsskatetoo #adultfigureskater #edges #doingthehardthings

  • Whoooo finally worked up the courage to *try* toe-loops. Very messy at this stage but I gotta start somewhere 🤷🏻‍♀️
-that 3 turn looks wonky
-the picking looks really weird. Straightening my leg seems to be a challenge. Whoops!

  • Okay this video is going to look like nothing to my non skating friends, but to my skating friends OMG I DID SOME INSIDE 3-turns away from the wall finally!! These have been eluding me for awhile and I’m just trying to get to the point where I can practice them with more confidence.  Don’t mind my hockey gloves, I forgot my regular gloves today.  #adultsskatetoo #adultfigureskater #figureskating #inside3turns #usfsa #learntoskateusa #isidelta  Still need to learn them on the other leg though...didn’t get that far today :)
