Chet Talks Body Position

    Namu @Chet a Butsu - ski Bodhisattva. I sense the "Way" is South. I must quiet the desire for an immediate trip to WPB.
    Is it time to ski, yet?

    Thanks, that reinforces stuff the TrentF is always talking about.

    Great video. Now, how many people will say I'm all in, but then be all out and let what he's talking about here go in one ear and out the other. I've got a friend who would be a beast on a ski, if he would only spend 2016 doing what Chet is talking about in this video.

    It's funny to cause you can say all in but then one little thing doesn't feel the same or it's not what you're used to... aaand done. Two steps back for one step forward is a hard pill to swallow sometimes. I ski vastly different then I did 12 months ago. But it's been "all in" with many many passes..easy ones...missed or simply abandoned cause it an old habit creeped in. Have not gone to short line in months and won't till what I'm working is innate.

    Chet doing what Chet does so well. Taking something fundamental that a lot of people know and delivering it in a manner that makes it impossible to ignore.

    I love talking with Chet. He is a super nice guy. Funny. Smart. Well studied as a coach and as a human. Great video. I have heard bits of that second hand but nice to hear him go through it again. I wish I lived closer to WBP.

    Chet is the guru. Well said. I know what he is saying, if only I could do it. Steps forward, little by little. One foot in front of the other.
    Chet asked me many years ago if I was willing to take a step backward (buoy count) in order to move forward and I was all in. It has paid off. We were talking about the difference between pros and amateurs and moving the ski out after the second.wake.
    He has never misled me and I am greatful for his coaching.

    Super nice person, and a great coach. His question of "all in" is terrific. Do you want to improve? Are you willing to pay the price?

    I've wanting to get some coaching with Chet. There's guy locally that coaches with him regularly and has made some huge gains.

    I did the video coaching thing with Chet before last year, $$$ well spent since it's a long way from Seattle to WPB

    Awesome video! The message is simple, commit to a proper body position and hold it. Sounds familiar right @Than_Bogan ?
    After 6 months of MonkeyBar gym doing HIIT I'm chomping at the bit to get going.
    I need to ski back to the handle obviously.

    @GaryWilkinson I try to be helpful, but let's not compare my coaching to @Chet. There are several planes of knowledge between where I am and where he is!

    Than it was a compliment well deserved. Your article changed my skiing forever and Chet's article reinforces that same concept of a strong, stacked body position. Well done.
