Ah. Just offering an observation re: dominant foot/walking downstairs/stance.

Like you I'm one of the odd ones that shifts between the "standard" tests...kick a ball with my right foot, slide on ice or floor or catch a push from behind with mostly my right but sometimes left, bat right, skateboard/razor push with left.

But the stairs. Always the right foot. Like I said I have to think about leading with my left.

ME I do both these right footed but I slide on ice/floor right foot in front. I snowboard right foot in front IE goofy.

So the old tests dont' always work but I am that rare odd ball statistic for those tests. Give it a try goofy sometimes it just clicks for you.

Good Luck
I agree with this. I'm left handed dominant but i kick balls with my left foot, i push off with my right on skateboard/scooter so ride regular(left foot forward)

You don't of course. While walking downstairs in heels, one pivots the body more sideways so that the entire foot is on the step, almost parallel. More like a 45 degree angle. Otherwise a stiletto tumbling death could ensue. I assume men noticed this?

But yeah, the down stairs test - even barefoot - would be which foot first. To take it even further, try angling your body at 45 deg so that you're mimicking more of how you'd be on a board, going essentially downhill (the stairs). Or if you're up for it, walk down sideways and see what foot you lead with.

Considering you're goofy and lead with your right foot downstairs, I'm calling that 3 for 3!

I am also waiving any responsibility for anyone who tries the stairs test and crashes.
