Actually I'm much more of a jumper than a turner, yet I have problems in keeping my back leg straight when doing grand jétés; my front leg usually goes up very high, but in order to keep that height, my beck leg bends.<BR>Also, I feel as if I can jump better with my left leg front - is this just paranoia or is this possible? How can I change this?<BR>Thanks!

No, it is certainly not paranoia! We have had a couple of other discussion on grand jetés. Generally speaking if you get your front leg too high it is very difficult to then get the back leg up and straight. You might want to consider getting it more even, rather than so high.<P>There is always one side that is better than another - for jumps, turns, extension, flexibility, strength - everything. This is not only true of our legs and arms, but also our eyes, how we chew, hear - interesting isn't it?<P>Here are some threads where grand jetés were discussed before - I think you will find lots of useful information there.<P><A HREF=../../../ubb/Forum19/HTML/000004.html><B>Grand Jete</B></A><P><BR><A HREF=../../../ubb/Forum19/HTML/000061.html><B>Grand Jetes</B></A><P><A HREF=../../../ubb/Forum19/HTML/000128.html><B>Leaping Help</B></A><P>If you use the "search" at the top of the page - on the right side - you can find lots of information that you want.<P><BR>
