For me when I stopped trying to focus on weight transfer, the shot improved. It's not so much upper or lower body but forward motion/momentum. Think of a drive off the back foot forward.
2. Maybe. Visualization is powerful.
3. Check earlier in the thread for my description of spin re: lifting the puck. You want the heel-to-toe movement of the puck, at least while learning.
thanks for the quick response!
I know there is a lot of emphasis on stick flex/weight shift. is it noticeable to you when you are taking a shot? I get down on the puck push it forward and whip it and sometimes its a beauty and i dont really remember feeling my body shift forward a LOT or the my stick was bending.
