The back camel is one spin that I never could enter. I would fall one side or the other, or get too far on the toe... I always wondered how others could so it so smoothly, and so I set my mind to try it.
But of course I would get utterly bored just working on the back camel alone, so I came up with a combination to justify the effort... so here goes:
Start the back camel, into a back sit (change-edge, if possible)
change foot into a forward sit, change position to broken leg
change foot again into a forward upright - in the OPPOSITE direction!
- getting speed on the back camel is still as $^&*#$ hard as ever!
- the back spin to forward spin transition really isn't all that hard
- OPPOSITE spin is easy if your brain and body don't get muddled up
- the exit on the other foot feels awfully strange!!
But after 3 weeks' of working on it, I occassionally manage to get through the entire combination feeling ok.
Practise makes perfect, right?
