Small observation from top roping Wednesday night: I’m learning to keep my arms straight, position my feet, and reach starting with my legs and body. It feels way more stable and effortless than reaching with my arms. Especially overhangs.
I’m really enjoying how swimming and climbing are teaching me basics of stable and efficient body movement.
I wonder, if I’d learned these concepts before picking up hockey, how much faster I could have improved on the ice.
I suppose I can still try out some of these ideas and use the ones that pan out for coaching.
