I had no idea that clean Back Inside were so difficult…..our test pattern has 4 lobes of BO, change to 4 lobes of BI down one length of the rink…..well my BO fill out the four lobes with no trouble, but my BI were so skinny it took me 8 lobes in the second half..😬….after much practice they are getting better….can do the second half in 4 or 5 lobes now, so still a bit of refinement, but I’m pleased with how far they have come. I still have some difficulty with the change of going from LBO into the LBI – that’s my weakest one and what causes me to have to do 5 lobes.

So it’s good if your coach showed you that way. Eventually, when you improve you won’t need to scissor the arms. Typically backward inside edges should be easier by the way! It’s hard to say what the issue is without seeing it for myself, but I would hazard a guess that you need to improve your backward push so that you can get more speed and flow to fill a good-sized lobe.
