The movements of foot pull back are simple to learn and effective

We didn't have time to add this exercise to the Fore/aft DVD, but in the next edition, I'll be presenting the details to the "Super Foot Pull Back", with the mute grab, as I'm doing here. Jay caught this as I was demonstrating to the group the flexibility needed for constant forward position over the skis. This is on iM 78.

after rooming with him, yes he does smoke and he looks just like his avatar.


Did you notice the strong cheesy smell from above his shoulders?

Oh sure, you had to do it on the 'fat' skis. :twisted: :)

Here is an example of what a strong pull back of both feet looks like:

In addition, its important to pull/hold the inside foot back throughout the turn.


Hi Max,

I notice I tend to lose control if my stance ski gets too far forward during two footed release even if I pull my free foot back really hard.

How do you pull the feet back at the release during Two footed release? The fore/aft DVD has the two feet pullback drill but that movement lifts the ski tails which is very abrupt when I do it at TFR. Do I use the same movement for TFR but less rigorously so the ski tails don't lift up?

During linked high energy BPSTs the tails may come up, but for a stationary TFR drill the tails don't lift off the snow.

1 - do you have dorsiflexion at both feet?

2 - are you allowing the stance leg to lengthen or are you maintaining too much knee flexion in the stance leg which causes a squatty hips back stance?

3 - are you flexing to release too early?

Thanks Max.

1. I think my dorsiflexion are ok.
2. I don't think my stance leg lengthens. From some videos I took, I definitely have a squatty hip.
3. I'm not sure. When is considered too early? I recall you commenting on my MA video indicating that I didn't have a release, I think I got it now. I think I was rushing the release with engagement. Instead, I should flex/tip to release. Be patient. Once the skis are flat, then tip strongly to engage. Is this correct?
