– Now, falling over in a sled
that has a blade width of five inches underneath you
is gonna be really difficult to get up. But we’re just gonna show you
to simple ways real quick. So when you fall over, you can do one of two things,
you can just get up and if you have enough
strength in your left arm, use your right side,
and you can just like do a one-handed
push-up and get yourself up. Or, if you fall over, just focus first, when you’ve
got your butt up in the air, get yourself to the blades,
get your one blade on the ice, get this hand flat, this hand here. Raise yourself up so that
you’re now in a more standing, upright position. And then, with you right hand,
now you can push here. And you have two hands
pushing you up, instead of just one hand
pushing you up and lifting your body. So that’s obviously
when you get more strength for the beginner position. Fall over, up on one blade, stick up, fist down, push on your blades. Fall over. Get on one, hand down,
stick on the far side, lift yourself up. So after seeing me fall down
and get up on five inch blades, you saw how hard it was. Here I am on three and a half. When I tip over, it’s a lot quicker to tip. That means that’s more leverage
you have to kind of get to get up on your edge. Same principles, stick on
the other side, hand up, and I get real quicker. And you’ll notice that like
this part here in particular, is what’s easier to do,
once you develop the strength. Same thing, I fall
down on this side. I get my hand out,
pick here. Up on my edge. But you’ll find a lot
of beginners too, once you actually go
from this point, you might get yourself up and
then you fall over right away. So that’s where you just
start thinking about where’s the happy medium. First time in a sled,
don’t worry about it, you can fall back and forth. Just get familiar with the
way to pick yourself back up and moving your blades in closer,
it’ll become a lot easier. So now we’re in my pro sled,
I just wanna show you the difference between the five inch, the three
and a half and one and a quarter here what I got. Fall down. It’s lot easier to get up, you don’t have to worry about
getting onto two blades. I mean, I’m still on two
but it’s not like I have a five inch width where I have
to like settle myself over. So I’m gonna use the technique
where I left myself up more than anything. Get up, ready, go. Hey everyone, thanks so

    Hey Kevin first of all I wanted to thank you for responding. Also I just had another question I have been noticing some weakness in my right shoulder specifically which ironically happens to be my dominant side and I have been diagnosed with rotator cuff tendonitis but I'm trying to kind of push through it for this season and I noticed that I am not able to push up and get myself back on my blades once I fall over on my right side I was wondering if you had any advice as to how I can get up on my right side without that strength in my arm
