(11AM) Sam, Ashley, Steve B, Ilian, Reva and me
Work on a Skill
I chose kipping pull-ups and handstand holds.
I spent 20 minutes on kipping pull-ups starting with kip swings, tight kip swings and several attempts at linking pull-ups together. Key points, key feet flexed quads tight, core tight, superman and hollow body from shoulders and push away from the bar instead of collapsing down.
I spent 20 minutes trying to kick into a handstand. Keep biceps by ears, tuck chin and pull rib cage down, lower foot acts as a pivot only and top foot leads hips into a handstand hold. I got one short one before collapsing.
Coach Meriah also showed me a drill for cartwheels. Hand-Hand-Foot-Foot in a square pattern. Right hand down, then Left hand down, then Left foot down, then Right foot down and repeat.
