I do an alternating move "shoot the Duck", right -Left -Right -Left
kind of like sitting with 1 foot sticking straight out, and alternate the foot sticking out, is that flexible enough ?
sounds like they work well for you, enjoy them. i just knew some world class single skaters that thought they were too stiff. maybe the size of the person matters too.
