  • The heels need to lead throughout the upwards phase of the swing. There is a tendency to hollow or pike which will hinder the swing.
  • If you have access to a cross sled, (or a total gym). Lie on your stomach feet upwards on the sled lifting your heels. Work the motion from arms at your side palms down push through to handstand position through a planche arm motion, and do the same through an inverted cross position. Very important to keep the arms straight. This motion can also be done with stretch tubing or thera-bands.
