PostSubject: the progression thread   Tue Oct 07, 2008 3:56 am

in an attempt to save this forum im going to post this thread

now for this thread you may set a bmx related goal
or a trick you want to learn by whatever time

how it goes you post a trick you want to learn and a time you want to learn it by
then every week or month post your proggression (keep consistent)
eg.
"i want to learn how to tailwhip by february 25th 2009"

you may post your suggestions to help another member
please, constructive critisism only.


il start it off
i want to learn 180 to fakies on flat by the 8th of november (so i have a month)
i always land backwards smooth but fall to my left side and loose balance so i cant fakie out

I guess I'll try to get 180 to fakie grinds, and I relearn one-handed one-footers by the end of October.

my 180's have gotten alot smoother and i get the spin alot more consistent
the fakie is still hard but now i can start pedalling backwards a few times

havent rode at all this week
decided i would today

i went out and tried 180, it got it first try Very Happy
then after that i was just focusing on the spin
i get 180 perfect easy now even when i dont try at all

i tried to spin once and way over rotated got 270 at least was scary
i want to try a 3 hop but i dont know if i have the skills yet

Well I failed to get full extended tucks by my goal (end of October) So instead I'll give my self one more chance and have it by this long weekend (Melbourne cup weekend. We have a day off on Monday)
