Hi, sorry, it’s not a “I’ve learned a new trick” topic, well, not quite
I basically play alone, there is one guy (very nice) around who’s also playing but we don’t see on a daily nor even weekly basis.
So I’ve been practicing for 3 weeks (and a few more days) straight, day in, day out but with work and family duties in between (I yo at work during ALL my pauses tho, or when I go pickup the kid at school or sport)
So that might be alot of practice and I’ve come what I feel is a decent way through these weeks.
but now I’m wondering
where are most players after 3 weeks in, 1 month, 1 year ? am I progressing well or am I rather slow ? with nothing to compare it to, I’d really like to know where I’m standing.
Anyways, so here’s where I’m at
- I definitely lack smoothness in most of my tricks (I’m starting to become slightly smoother on the intermediate level tricks, split the atom, barrel rolls/atomic bomb etc…)
- I also lack speed
- my throw is getting better, straighter and I can do 2 or 3 reps of matrix and bind it in the end
- I’m working my way through advanced lvl1 on YYE tutorials (thanks Andre, you’re the last voice I hear every night before I go to sleep since 3 weeks ago)
I’m starting to feel really comfortable with the yoyo, but I still have to give it alot of thought during tricks etc… I can’t land the mounts every single time (I can with split bottom or other basic mounts but I’m not very consistent with double or nothing or 1/2 mount for example, I can do them but sometimes it won’t work, and I really am very bad landing a trapeze, don’t ask why, but I can land a double or nothing more easily than a trapeze, go figure)
so there’s my question
- where am I at ? am I doing good, average or rather bad ?
I’ll record a video later (probably during the week end), maybe it’ll be better to show.
sorry to bother you but this is really bothering me not to have the slightest idea about how I’m doing.
