Day 25: Double Inside Turns/Spins


Go back and take a look at the notes I gave for the inside turns. These don’t have to be any different. It is just half a turn more. You can STEP these out OR you can spin them. To step them out you pivot on 2, 3 AND on 5 since this is a double turn now. Or to spin them, you just bring your feet together on 3, transferring your weight to your right foot and spinning on that foot, then transferring your weight to your left on 5 to do your back basic.

Don’t think about adding more power if you are stepping it out. Simply continue spotting and continue pivoting until you make it around. If you are spinning this will require just a little bit of power to make it all the way around two times. Still, if you give yourself too much, you will throw yourself off balance.


  • Keep your feet turned out the whole time.
  • SPOT. You know why. ūüôā
  • Open your hips on 2, this will give you power as you close your hips and bring your feet together on 3.
  • Don’t push off or give yourself a lot of power, this will just throw your weight past your center and you will lose your balance
  • Engage your abs, inner thighs, glutes, and feet. Keep the shoulders pressing down, even if you are trying arm styling.

If you want to try and give your-self a boost of power and speed (if you think you can handle it) use your arms. By opening your arms and then snapping them in to center as you turn, you will feel quite a bit of force and momentum in your turn. Be careful that it does not throw you off balance.

Good luck!
