– Ride up with your arms up slightly in front, your abs squeezed
tight, and your buttocks squeezed. When you begin to feel yourself
coming down is when you want to hit your toe touch. It is at the very
top. A toe touch in a basket is done by bringing your legs straight up
without bending them, pointing your toes, rotating your hip flexers,
and dropping your chest into the stunt as your arms hit a T motion.
The reason why you drop your chest is so that your leg momentum does
not flip you over. Remember to hit your motion in front and
kick your legs behind your arms for a higher toe touch. On the
way down squeeze your legs together, pull your arms to your side, pull
up with your belling button, tuck your chin, and squeeze in a slightly
arched position. As you meet with the bases’ hands, pike and
catch for the cradle.
