Hi Derrick,
The harder cushions compensate for ankle movement. I like the harder cushions myself for spins. Actually I like them a lot for freestyle in general.

I also use 8 lb weight in each hand to get more spin from a standing position. Not enough room to comple a regular entry in the basement. But one goes weeeeee... when you pull the weights in close. Sometimes I wear just one skate and an ankle weight on the balance foot so there is no way I can drop to a two foot spin. Works for three turns as well.

I might be just a little bit nutty. In fact everyone went to bed early so I'm going to the dungeon to spin and listen to music.

Well the one foot spin is still a bit difficult to pull off with weights, but I'm gtting there. They take the two foot for a ride though.

Default Bend the performing knee somewhat

I know I'm supposed to bend it a lot. It does set better well bent, but getting back to upright is challenging. Well for me it is anyway.
