count of the word DOWN to drop you shoulders slightly so that on the
word UP you think about lifting up with your shoulders and your chest.

armpits and squeeze her into your for the cradle.
TIP: if you cannot
reach the ankles, then grab the bases’ wrists.

shoulders. Pop the flier off of your hands by pushing the flier’s
right foot to your right. Just go with the flier’s spin and do not
fight her rotation. Leave your hands up then catch high and absorb
with your legs for the cradle
