I'm sure it happens to a lot of other people. Often, I find myself sinking out or falling behind on tracking jumps, especially with a relatively light person leading. If I wear a t-shirt and regular pants I'm usually pretty screwed.
I've been working on some things like making sure I don't hesitate at all when getting into the track and trying to get slightly ahead of the leader. It took a couple videos of myself to see my ugly delta track and fix that, so now l make sure I cup my chest and make sure my arms stay in front of my body.
I fell behind a couple times and thought I was turning my head to the side to catch more air, but I was also looking so far ahead at the group that my chin was more up and I was just sinking out further. So I'll work on keeping my chin closer to my shoulder when that happens. I guess a lot of the lighter people are more "floaty" and they can get the extra momentum from leaning in and coming down?
For now I'll stick with wearing a jacket and pants but, are more experienced people that weigh 210+ able to keep up with lighter trackers? Summer months are coming up here in California and it would be nice to know if I'll be able to get by in a t-shirt eventually.
I'm still a "baby bird" and know that I need a lot more practice and jumps to get better, but anybody got any other tips or advice?
