Here's the thing.....
Maybe its me but some how, I know in my head I can do this jump from a traditional entry (back cross overs back edge set and jump) but when I get on the ice its a whole different ball game - not sure if its mental block but it seems when I am on that back edge my timing and my thought process is not clicking.
When I tested my bronze fs (which all my jumps passed) I did my loop jump from an forward inside 3 turn entry and I like this entry because 1. it does not put a strain on my back, 2. I can control my entry and take off, however, as time has passed, I felt and got the courage to try and go back to the loop jump from a "traditional' entry. Its been taking me to long, its frustrating and I am just at a point that why even bother.
It finally clicked......
with lots of off ice at home and I saw this video youtube "thinice" he actually showed how to do a loop from an inside edge, so I decided to give a shot. What clicked for me was when he said "its like the salcow (my favorite jump) when you do the 3 turn you hold the edge and then "jump" it finally clicked!! light bulb moment"
Here is my loop jump from an FI3T - yes it needs more height but I can work on it for sure...since now I know the timing and the jump itself, its a matter of time to get it where it needs to be "mastered". Notice my free leg is in front (yeah) and I actually exit the jump nicely too!!! I am so happy and proud of myself considering. (sorry for the blur video).
I was very pleased with myself and have something to work on moving forward. Doing some PT for my shoulder which is helping and same time getting a second opinion don't want to go the surgery route. Thank you everyone for your support and during my long absence off the ice.
