facing your base (straight on). On count place (do not step hard)
with you right foot into the bases hands and at the same time you will
place your hands on the base’s shoulders. Your body position needs to
be right over the base, whereas you can see the base’s backside. In
motion, you need to think first push off of the base’s shoulders, and
then step up with your right foot. This will make your stunt
lighter. Remember to push straight down and do not pull the base
forward, or he will fall down. Right after you push straight down
through the base, you want to step up and straighten your body.
Now ride the pop by lifting with your shoulders, place/squeeze your
arms to your side, squeeze your backside, keep your chest up,
and make sure your legs are locked. As the base catches you,
make sure your toes are slightly pointed and you weight is distributed
through the middle of your foot.
down at your hips and make sure your legs are shoulder width apart.
Now place your right hand over your left, and place your forearms on
your thighs. As the flier comes into the stunt, grab for her right
foot and bounce your forearms off of your thigh. This technique will
give you more momentum into the stunt. Try to keep your biceps flexed
and DO NOT straighten your arms Or you will struggle on the stunt.
Waite for the flier as she pushes off, then pop
her up. As she comes above your shoulders, grab the fliers feet with
a hamburger grip (thumbs to the inside) in the middle of the feet.
Now squeeze for the finish.
