Ill try to be more available for answers (to everything).br/As for floorwork; it doesnt matter which side you pass on, high arches are usually amended with a foot covering like a shoe or arch cushiony-thing, toes are trickier. Try really extending the lunge so it is controlled more by the hips than the feet, if that makes sense. Use the back foot to push off as much as the front foot to pull.br/Strengthening for the Zipper..anything to strengthen the quads, period. The floorwork sit up is the best because it hits all the spots, but any leg strengtheners are going to help.
