Start with an
the bases extend, begin to shift your weight and right foot to the
center of the stunt. Make sure you are hollowing out your body,
squeezing your abs, keeping your legs together, and keeping your head
up. Right before the stunt is fully extended you want to pull your
left leg straight up (at 45 degrees) to your left hand which has
pulled to a HI-V by this point. Never bend either leg and never dip
down for your left leg as you pull your stretch.
Back spot-Start with the flier’s ankles with your corresponding
hands. As the flier goes up. Work your left hand to assist with the
flier’s right ankle (so you have 2 hands on her ankle). Then Squeeze
up for the finish.
Right base- Start with your elevator grip. On count extend the
flier up and slightly to the center. Make sure the entire time that
you are squeezing her foot for support.
NOTE: make sure the flier is slightly on the ball of her foot.
You do not want her on her heel OR all the way on her toes.
Left base- Start with your elevator grip. On count guide the
flier up and slightly toward the center. Before you hit the top of the
stunt, quickly place your right hand under the flier’s foot and your
left hand on top of your flier’s foot. Squeeze for support to finish.
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.
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.
