How do you spin and not get dizzy?
I'm an ice skater and im going to learn spins soon but i dont know how to do it without getting dizzy
Some people here are talking about focusing on a spot on the wall, or trying to keep your head in one position and then "snap" it around at the last minute. They're talking about "spotting" your spin. This is what they do in dance.
In skating, though, it doesn't work. You're spinning too fast. If you spot the spin, you slow the spin down. So in general, most skater's don't spot their spins. A few do, though - but most do not.
Spinning is interesting. At first, you will get quite dizzy. But your body actually gets used to it, and in time, with practice, they make you less dizzy.
But there's a reason why skaters don't spin, then move right into a jump or other difficult element - they take a step or two first, taking some footwork, to recover from the spin. That's also the reason why so many skaters end their program with their longest, fastest spin. They *have* to do that spin at the end, because it makes them too dizzy to continue!
as you spin you concentrate on one point in front of you and look at it as long as possible as u spin, it will help A LOT
Focus on a spot on the wall and never loose focus with that spot. In effect turn your head last with the rotations
Maybe try motion sickness meds like "Dramamine" to counteract the dizzy feeling??
Practice, practice, practice. After a lot of practicing your body won't get as dizzy. Also, when you are getting out of your spin, just focus on one spot. Rest if you are too dizzy, and you will get better. Have fun spinning!
Just keep on practicing. Pretty soon, you'll get used to spinning and you won't get dizzy and more. Make sure that you're not looking down at the ice when you're spinning, but straight in front of you, because it will help you to be less dizzy.
