Success is built on failure. Swipe to see the progression. A key to keeping acro training fun is realizing that failure isn't really failure, it's a natural part of the path to building skills. For us the only unsuccessful attempt is one in which there is no learning. We've wanted to get this skill clean for a while and hadn't been able to coordinate the timing quite right. We started this session off with 3 sets of back bird tip and press to h2h with no pop to get the timing of flyer shoulder opening and hollow to base leg press. Then we went for it with the pop and after a few rounds we got it pretty smooth. One of the keys for me was to give a feeling of ground with my hands sooner so @christinemoonbeam had something to push down into. We're teaching an intermediate h2h class in New Orleans today at 2pm, send me a message if you're interested in the area and interested. Free Star and some h2h experience required.
Also our advanced immersion (standing h2h required to sign up) is open for registration, as is teacher training. Follow the link in my bio for more info. Happy training guys!
