Hey, Im just looking for ideas..

Right now, Im thinking inlocate + kip, but the break down of body motion seems too broken...

Any suggestions would be very welcome.


Thanks!

So.. much like the drill set for learning lock-arms, I have been trying to think of an "easy way" to break down the mechanics of this skill. I would like some people's input for it.



Step 1: Inlocate.

Step 2: On a set of adjustable rings, lower rings to top of a wedge mat. Gymnast lies on back in pike with hands on rings and "sits up" to "L" support.

Step 3: Kip

Step 4: Inlocate + Kip

Step 5: Combine into fluid motion.


I cant think of any other means to teaching the motion... any suggestions?

most important component is keeping pressure against the rings thru the pull down and then kip up phase.
