I think it shows that if you have the tenacity to sick at something the seems virtually impossible, you will be able to do it to some extent and then improve on it once you have the fundamentals down. wink.gif

Great find Phil, I love science videos like this. It really is inspiring and I can only imagine the surprise when you try out a bike like this. It must feel impossible and this is how it feels when you need to change old bad habits which are engraved deeply. Especially for stuff which requires muscle memory and other aspects and not just the "how to do it" theory. I've been playing tennis for about 10 years and I made a 10 years pause after than. To cut the long story short, I'm currently working on my serve and backhand. Both strokes had some bad habits deeply engraved and it feels hard to change them. Especially as both of them "kinda work" actually and are usable. So it is a long and frustrating process but what I'm focused on is the end result and I'm sure I'll get there - sooner or later smile.gif Same with playing the instrument, even though sometimes there is an easier way to do something, it doesn't mean you should do it. I remember practicing alternate fingerpicking on bass (same as alternate picking on guitar - down>up>down>up ...just with combining 2 fingers). At first it felt so weird and wrong and impossible. Slowly but surely, it worked its way to replace the old habit (of playing several notes with the same picking finger) and in the end it meant more comfortable, flexible and faster playing. Practice is always worth it - as long as you have proper guidance!

Yeah I agree, this is why I posted this video because many, like me who have been noodling on guitar with no instruction will be frustrated at bad habits they are trying to break. It took this man 8 months to learn the new way but more importantly, the new way was ingrained and he struggled to go back to the old way. This will happen with bad habits so please people, DO NOT GIVE UP wink.gif

Do star jumps for a bit, then keep doing them except with the arms going down while your legs go out. happy.gif
