I tried starting every practice set at 22 off (16M) and bringing the boat speed up slowly, i.e. 30, 32, 33.5, 34.2 (55K). The plan was that I would get the feel of 22 off and be running it consistently, sooner than if I did warmup passes at 15 off.
The issue is that I don't get as many full warmup passes and then I feel like I am not skiing as well. I typically make 50% of the -22/32 and 25% at -22/33.5mph. Note, I never go up in speed until I make a smooth, full pass.
What do the ballers think? Should I move the speed up by smaller increments 0.2 mph? Or should I go back to 15 off (18.25M) warmup passes?
1. Either way I know I need to have good solid fundamentals.
2. I don't run all of my -15/34mph passes but my thinking is, as I refine skills at -22, those skills would be backwards compatible and help me crush 15 off.
