Common error’s in jumps and ways to fix them…
I’m exploring the MOST common errors in all the jumps in skating. See if you can relate and use these resources to help you!
- Help with height
- Help with Salchow, Toe Loop, Loop, Flip, Lutz and Axel
Jump Height - Use the "Follow Through" Technique:
Would you like higher jumps? Better GOE scores on your jumps?
Play around with this idea:
Follow Through… just like a golfer keeps the golf club moving or a tennis player with a tennis racket, you should do the same with your free leg and arms!
If you don’t follow through you will have a stiff, small jump. If you do you will gain flow, height and general “wow”ness that will move judges fingers to the right towards the +goe buttons 😉
Try it on a three jump first then apply the same theory to all your jumps!

Axel Swapping Drill
Working on axel??
There’s many ways to get this feeling of swapping sides, here’s one to try 😃
This one really helps as it forces you to make the rotation using internal hip rotation to swap instead of swing, and be strong after the swap to keep the position.
It’s harder than it looks! Give it a try! (Even if you’ve got your axel! This will challenge the strength of your axis position after the swap)
