    I am very confused by these 2 different videos, they seem to contradict one another.

    In the first video Rip says elbows up, and no compression at all on the wrists & elbows.

    And in the second video Rip says elbows down, and you want compression on wrists & elbows.

    When in doubt, defer to the current version of the information, since we learn things all the time.

    still peaking at that mirror,
    cover the mirror and lock your eyes where the wall meets the floor,
    put something there to stare at,
    your head bobbing could be movement in your shoulders also , , ,
    coaches ?

    your feet should be wider, shoulder width, bring them out a couple inches,
    your feet should splay more, 30* each, you're looking 15ish there,
    then track your knees over your feet, really crank them out,
    cuz yeah, your knees are folding,

    I was told my feet were too wide, so I narrowed my stance.
    It does look like I知 looking in the mirror but I知 not. I知 staring at the boxes on the ground. That痴 just the way my head wants move.

    Your left foot appears to be farther forward than your left, and your toe angles definitely don't match. Have you checked for a leg length discrepancy?

    Are there any coaches available to help me work on my form?

    I would prefer online private coaching sessions.
