Thats cute M.  I wonder if we can adapt that for the other bits of anatomy too - like keeping the pelvis back etc
I'm sure it would.  We used to use a piece along the back of the neck to help remind us of proper head position too, so I have no doubt that it could be modified.

I used to use a rope, 4 coins and a couple of sticks to learn to keep the frame as a man.   

Yes, it did look hideous but I got the point in about a month so it did work. Tongue Roll Eyes  Shocked Wink Cheesy.....I was willing to do what my teacher told me to do and therefore learned it really fast. Didn't care what others were thinking.

I think I can picture the rope and sticks...but I'm not sure how the coins fit in with that apparatus.  ...or were they used on their own?

I'll have to give that a try.  Our studio bought a frame trainer, but it's too small for me.

Please do not use that devise. Angry I saw two people have serious accidents with that kind of devise. One fell backward and cracked open his skull and the other fell forward and broke his nose. They were strapped in and not able to break their fall. The reason I used rope and sticks was because if I were to fall, then no harm done.

The rope was in a cross formation in front of my body and then gathered in my left hand, the stick was down my back and the coins were held between my fingers of the right hand. Cheesy
