Whoever bumped this thread, good on you for not just starting a new one.
Lol, funny reading these old threads.

But you did find another thread; this one! While other newbies and
not-so newbies are polluting the area with duplicate threads (that
usually have less-than useful titles). So good for you!

So you don't need to lean either way. Just sit up straight. If you can
wheel walk with both feet it's practically the same thing. What's the
problem? It's always easier to help when we know what's going wrong.
Practice on an upward slope if possible, as it takes less energy. Not
really, but it favors your strong muscles and doesn't make you use the
weaker ones (hamstrings) as much.

I'm inspired. I have tried a couple times. I'm going to make time to
practice.

Sweet!
