Ground up Scorpion

 

 

 

 

 

  

Flier-Start with your right foot placed I the hands of the main base and your hands on the shoulders of both of your bases. On count ride push off of the bases shoulders and step up to the top of the stunt while straightening both legs as you ride up.  At the top hit your scorpion.  This is done by using your back muscles to kick you left leg straight you.  Grab the top part of you foot right away with both hands.  This can be very difficult, so beginners may want to grab their foot from the side with their left hand.  Once you have you left foot, pull up so that you foot is pointing up. 

TIP:  You may let go of your foot with your left hand and point it to the front to give the stunt an added effect.

TIP: Practice this stunt on the ground by having another person help by lifting your leg.

TIP: Keep your leg locked so you do not fall.

TIP: balance by squeezing

 

Back spot-(Hands on spotting at all times) Start with your right hand on the flier’s right ankle. Your left hand will be on the flier’s backside. On count follow the flier straight up.  As the flier stands up let go of the flier’s buttocks and use your left hand as another base on the flier’s right ankle.

NOTE- when following flier up do not push her forward or she will fall. 

NOTE- If too short to grab the ankle, try to grab the bases wrists instead for support.

 

Side base-Start by bending down and grabbing under the flier’s right foot with your right hand, then grab on top of the flier’s foot with your left hand.  On count follow the flier and squeeze to the top.  .   For the dismount dip with your legs and pop through your shoulders for the finish. 

 

Main base-Start with your right hand under the flier’s toes and your let hand on the flier’s right heel. On count dip and extend your arms straight up with the flier on top and lock out your arms.  Remember to lift with your arms right away and finish with your legs towards the end.   For the dismount dip with your legs and pop through your shoulders for the finish. 

NOTE- do not bend your arms or flier will fall.

NOTE- do not sweep or your will lose height on toss
