Rule 1: Drive your knees forward.
Rule 2: Balance board exercises will help get better.
Rule 3: Consistency is key.

I had a big breakthrough this week end. I was more shuffling than anything else. Well, not anymore.

Body awareness is paramount. I am finding out that when arms, knees and core work together, my performance goes thru the roof. But it is tough.

Very interesting. Up til now, I've been focusing on driving my knees "up" quickly but I never considered driving them "forward". I noticed this changes a lot of things ! Thanks for your post.
