Elevator Fulldown

 

 

 

 

Start with an Elevator

 

Flier-Star with your arms up in a Hi-V. As the bases dip for the pop do remain tight and do not bend your legs. The bases need to have something to throw and if you bend your legs then you are absorbing their throw. As the base throw you straight up, begin pulling your leg arm down around your lower back, your right arm across your belly to your left hip, your right hip up, and tuck your chin to your left shoulder. You are fulling at this point and need to remain tight. AS you come around after eyeing the ground, open up your arms to get ready to catch your bases. AS you feel their shoulders, grab and squeeze tight. Plan on catching yourself at all times.

Base(s) - face across one another in an elevator. On count, dip with your legs, an pop the flier's legs up and slightly to the right (you are guiding her around for the full). Keep your arms up. As the flier comes around, catch your flier high with your arms, then absorb and squeeze her into your body for the finish.

Backspot - Start in the back of an elevator. Place your hand on the flier's ankles. On count dip with the elevator. As the flier is thrown in the air by the bases, guide her right ankle forward to assist her with the placement of full for the catch. Keep your arms up and wait for the flier to come around. As you begin to feel her coming through the full, grab high for the flier's armpits and push your arms through (remember to keep your hands in fists), and squeeze the flier in safely.

 

Flier-Stay as tight as possible. Lifting up with your shoulders, hollowing out, and squeezing your abs and backside will do this.  With your hands at your side hold your position as the bases extend. When you hit the top, hold your head up and finish with a Hi-V.

 

TIP: If one base is weaker than the other and timing is off, make sure you just stay tight.  DO NOT try to compensate by bending either one of your legs OR the base that is holding your straight leg foot will get all of the weight.

 

TIP: If the other base is struggling, make sure you wait for him/her to catch up to you OR the stunt will fall if they do not have the strength to finish.
