So far so good. My knees are holding up since I’ve got back into training the 360 degree spins on one leg.
My right leg can now do a 360 spin but I’ve only managed to do a 270 degree spin on my left leg. It’s still a bit wonky but with a bit more practice I’ll get a 360 spin in.
The 360 degree spin on one leg is part of my Tai Chi form and in the past I have practiced it in two parts to avoid further straining my knee. A 180 turn, pause and another 180 turn to complete the 360.
What I do now is practice in my socks indoors and do eight repetitions daily on either leg and pay particular attention to each part of the spin – relaxation, balance, kwa, rotation.
I’m determined to build up to 360 degrees without wrecking my left knee.
Only 90 degrees to go!
