Set Up  

  1. Stand between the ropes facing one anchor.
  2. Grip the rope on either side just in front of your hips.
  3. Lean forward onto your hands.
  4. To wrap the rope around your leg, lift one leg behind you inside the two ropes then out, over, and around the rope.
  5. Repeat with the second leg and pinch rope between feet
  6. Gather the ropes together at your chest and grip with one hand, palm facing your chest. (*This is a great time to ensure that any vital body parts (cough…men) are not pinched between the ropes.)
  7. With your other hand, grip the rope above your head, thumb forward.
  8. Before beginning the move, stretch long along the rope to make the move easier.

Directions Forward/Backward

  1. Begin the move by flipping over so that you are under the rope.
  2. To initiate returning to the starting position on top of the rope, begin a corkscrew motion with your ankles. On the side that you want to go, bring that ankle over the other ankle, followed by the knee, hip, and lastly the shoulder.

*This move is more easily performed on the flattest section of the ropes (middle).

 

* This move is more difficult to get into, however, once in position, the corkscrew motion is very natural and relatively easy. This is also a hard move to fall out of. Instead, people generally just let themselves down if they are not able to complete the move.
