Gareth Pivot / Angulation / Hip Issues

Working on pivoting exercises and specifically on angulation and control over hip rotation – through using “Chips” – Chi Hips.

The comparison photos are to show how at every stage Gareth lacks control over the hips – causing a lack of angulation and lack of control over rotation. This can also be seen in extremely weak use of the poles during the pivoting.                         The same issue also dominates carving as seen below – with the addition of the outside foot trailing and ankle being flexed. The outside hip must be pulled back and the foot pushed forwards. This guarantees angulation, flexibility and control of rotation.
