So, after maybe 10 years of responsive, I’ve been really working unresponsive for about 3 or 4 months now and getting to that point where learning new tricks is a much slower process than before.
Instead of constantly pushing myself for days on a trick (which can be not fun), I’ll sometimes spend a good hour just doing technical basics. Like, maybe I’ll go 20 minutes doing nothing but going from trapeze to double or nothing and back to trapeze, and so on. Sometimes I’ll even try to do that smoothly with my eyes closed. Other times maybe I’ll just do all my basic binds 40 or 50 times, or see how many basic lacerations I can do in a row.
I guess my thinking is that, like any sport, it’s just as important to have a good feel for the yoyo (the fundamentals) as it is to know complex tricks, so this seems like a good training tactic. Do you do this, or am I just way out there?
