DOug,

I just arrived on this forum, but something really important is not to
pull too much positive G immediately after gone negative. -3 to +5 is
physiologically more difficult than 1 to 9. (loss of conciousness)

Great point! I suppose that the negative G load causes the blood
vessels to swell and if you go hard positive you are going to gray out
at a lower G load. I can really feel this difference.

Suggested training program:

Exercise #1: from level upright, 1/2 roll inverted, pause,
then push to 45 up inverted. Pause. 1/2 roll to upright
45 up. Gently lower nose to level upright again. Descend
to regain airspeed. Repeat.

Exercise #2: from level upright, 1/2 roll inverted. Push
past 45 up to vertical upline. Hammerhead to vertical
downline, pull level. Repeat.

Exercise #3: from level upright, 1/2 roll inverted. Push
past 45 up, past vertical to level upright, completing
1/2 outside loop up. Pause without sagging. Descend to
regain airspeed. Repeat.

Exercise #4: from level upright, 1/2 roll inverted. Push
past 45 up, past vertical, past level upright to 45 downline,
upright. Pause. Pull level. Not much different than #3, really.

Exercise #5: from level upright, 1/2 roll inverted. Push
past 45 up, past vertical, past level upright to 45 downline,
upright. 1/2 roll inverted on 45 downline. Push to level
inverted. Repeat - you can skip 1/2 roll on entry. You
are now doing a full outside 1/2 cuban-8.

Exercise #6: from level upright, 1/2 roll inverted. Push
past 45 up, past vertical, past level upright, past 45 downline,
past vertical downline - don't hesitate - to level inverted.
You've just completed your first solo outside loop!

As others have mentioned, a pull right after a push is a
sure-fire G-loc trap.
