Lake Placid Tip: Forward Outside 8s Arm Position

I've been working on my FO8 for a while, and really they're okay. But now that I'm doing BO8, I'm still picking up tips for FO8s. I know, I know, I'm never satisfied. Here's my newest tip for FO8 from a group class at Lake Placid.

Okay? Ready for the next tip for FO8? Here goes, as you stroke off push your trailing shoulder down. This pushes you to the back of the blade without over leaning backward! I mean, that's SUBTLE! It's so subtle, it doesn't show up in the drawing below, so I drew an arrow to point out the trailing shoulder.

Now, I'm sure all your FO8 will be perfect in your dreams and on the ice!!!
