Working through the Core principles and Progression exercises will show you what’s been missing in terms of control, agility, balance and edge control. When you acquire the skills demanded by the stop you’ll then use your practice time efficiently, rather than just endlessly “practicing” the manoeuvre without success.This video focusses on the Plough, Stepping Plough and T-Stop for controlling speed on downhill slopes. Using real students (Ian, Chris & Kat from Brighton) to identify some of the common problems Asha shows you how to improve these stopping methods. Common Problems with the Plough stop on slopes – not being wide enough in the plough A stance means no deceleration and scary downhill acceleration instead..Common Problems with the T-stop – spinning, loss of balance, can’t hold it long enough to come to a stop. This is caused by instability on the front (support) leg during the T-slide. This is why the T-Stop is an Intermediate level stop (and not a beginner stop). It demands a HIGH LEVEL of edge control, one legged balance, steering control and core strengthProgressions are the only way to learn new stopping methods especially if you’ve tried to learn them by copying others & watching Youtube tips but it’s still not working. The most common mistake is people thinking that they “just need to practice more”. This is not what’s missing, more practice time; What’s missing are specific progression exercises and movements that are designed to develop the core skills which each manoeuvre demands.
