seagoal Posted June 3, 2019 Share Posted June 3, 2019 I wanted to start this discussion because I am looking to improve on my glove side down low, on wrap around type plays or backdoor slam dunk type plays or even close-in low shots to my feet. I think I am very good on my blocker side on these types of plays but need to improve on the glove side. I do have a bit of asymmetry in my hip/leg flexibility and I a much better/stronger/more flexible on my dominant side, my right, blocker side. So, that is coming into play here for me, personally. Do you guys find yourselves leading with your feet after dropping down on your glove side knee first, or, are you leading with your stick after you cross it over from your blocker side to your glove side across your midpoint? I am thinking of a classic wrap around on my blocker side. My sequence is 1) drop my blocker arm and shoulder first 2) almost simultaneously but a bit behind that drop my right knee and begin my push with my left, glove side foot 3) make sure the knob of my stick is outside the post...I always hear the "clank" 4) get my skate to the post on longer plays or get my boot/shin to the past on closer plays. I'm very good at this sequence and have a lot of confidence. The sequence is very similar for backdoor slam dunks or close-in shots to me right foot. I struggle with the comparable sequence on my left, glove side. I let in some soft goals on shots to my left foot and wrap around / slam dunk type plays on my left. Anyone else struggle with this? Any tips on the comparable motions or sequence -especially for the upper body and glove arm - on down low glove side plays? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
