Didn't have my camera going for my lesson. We worked on a Lutz/Loop combination and trying to do a Flip with a more difficult double three turn entry (really slows the energy down). After that my coach says "I think I am going to start teaching you a Death Drop" ... I nearly fainted.
Here is what they look like:
This is definitely something I never did as a child. I don't really have a Back Camel or a Back Sit Spin yet... so why she wants me to start thinking about this Death Drop into a Back Sit ...is beside me. My motto this year is not to be negative and just go for it.
So far - All I have to show for a lesson on Death Drops is a broken fingernail from the at-the-wall exercises. I think there may be bruises involved in learning this one.
