Indirect vision

How did you learn and become efficient with indirect vision? I’m having a hard time and hurting my neck trying to see and figure out which way to turn the instrument. I did great in school but I took time off after I graduated and now I’m starting again from square 1.

I had to force myself to use indirect vision even though it didn’t feel natural at first. It took a bit longer to scale certain areas at first, but I knew my neck and back in the long run depended on it! It will come back to you, you just need to be patient with yourself. Don’t give up and contort yourself; every time you feel yourself leaning and not using your mirror, stop and reset. It’s much harder to break bad habits than it is to have the patience and just learn the correct habits. Again, it’s never easy at first but with practice it will become like second nature and your neck and back will thank you! You got this! Be confident!

I agree with Kara. You will force your body into unnatural positions and once you get tired of the discomfort you will learn how to use indirect vision and become very proficient with it. It will eventually “CLICK”. Good luck.
