Today we started on high falls – we did a few off the 1st platform, then moved up to the 2nd platform. I did suicides and headers off the second platform. I was over-rotating a bit on the header – fixed that by reaching out more.
Then we moved onto the air ram. The air ram is an air-pressure catapult that flings you in the air when you step on the plate. I was a bit nervous, since it can be dangerous if you hit it wrong. But it felt fine, and I got a bunch of decent rides in, doing headers. Bob eventually increased the air pressure for me a few pounds, so that I get more air. That – plus his advice to reach up more, and to step on the plate more authoritatively, helped a lot.
We finished up with car hits. We padded up, and Bob drove his stunt car down at a fairly slow speed. We would then time it right and barrel roll over the hood onto the mats on the other side. The first few times, I was way too late in going for it – the car was practically stopped. The few runs were better.
We cleaned up, and prepped for fire burns tomorrow!
