X-out

 

   

 

 

Flier – Ride up with your arms straight up, your abs squeezed tight, and your buttocks squeezed. Right before your hit the top of your ride is when your want to pull your knees to your chest and wrap under your knees with your arms.  Do not throw your head back. Right when you hit your tuck you want to snap open your X by pushing off of your legs, spreading your legs to an X, hitting a Hi-V as you are upside down, and lifting with your chest to continue your rotation.  You are doing this correctly if your legs are straight up and arms are down (to give you an X effect). This needs to be quick.   Keep pulling through your rotation with your hips, lift your chest, bring your arms to your side, and keep your chin tucked.  As you meet with the bases’ hands, pike and catch for the cradle.
