In this lesson, Michael wraps up your arms and talks about your front arm and how it should be belly button height. Your back arm should be placed shoulder height on the take off. You will then see skaters try this position.
Michael discusses the head placement and does an exercise to help you with your take off by holding the position. You will see this exercise and it will help you control your take off. In this 2 min and 40 second video lesson, you will also see Michael do this exercise to really see the benefit of your arm placement on the take off.
