MB does a deeper dive into some of the most important topics from the first 15 episodes of FPM Podcast.

0:00 - Intro

1:10 - Stance: It’s a “Keystone Fundamental”, Most important fundamental in skiing.  The center of every other movement.  If you want to improve your skiing, Find ways to Conceptualize, think about and improve this in your own skiing this year.  Dryland Drills can help breakthrough to a new feeling…, then there are different ways of feeling it on the water....freeski, cut and coast, etc..  GOAL is to feel more power/speed out of your movements with less effort:  ex.

2:14 - Dry Land Drills: If you are serious about improving your skiing, start with Stance

3:40 - On Water Drills:  free ski, etc… to help you FEEL a new position, on the ski.

4:50 - The Goal with Stance = Efficiency and Longevity

5:10 - Dynamic Movement a key component of your best Water Skiing.  Not posing…not “holding”, but constantly moving to keep in rhythm with the Boat

6:43 - Relationship of Rope to your Feet = potentially a better guide to dynamic movement than simply trying to “Stay perpendicular to the ski”

9:05 - once the boat starts to load you.....out of the turn.....you need to have your feet behind the rope

9:52 - SPEED:  Its always about acceleration to the wakes.  This can make or break your skiing.

The Problem with thinking ANGLE first, out of the buoy

Instead, Ski Into Angle

HOW TO GENERATE SPEED = use Stance to create Dynamic Movement towards the wakes…feet behind the line of action from the boat....the rope....

12:02 - Position first, not Lean!!

13:30 - Technique → Strength → Mobility

15:20 - You HAVE TO operate between 2 brains

Understanding the conceptual part of skiing

When you show up to the lake, simplify your approach to 1, or maybe 2, simple keys

16:00 - Water Skiing is an ART…not a Science.  

KEEP IT SIMPLE when you show up to the lake

18:13 - Maybe MOBILITY is holding you back from reaching your potential on the water?

19:34 - Strength vs Power:  Power is Strength/Time

Power is positional, and therefore Skiing is positional 

22:21 - LEARN FASTER — 80/20 rule:  How much should you be “Failing” ,in training, ,vs How much should you be “Succeeding”?

What is the definition of “Success” and what is a definition of “Failure”?

25:06 - Wrap up and Closing Thoughts

27:02 - Water Skiing is an Art, not a Science
