Set Up
1. Stand in front of the ropes facing forwards.
2. Lift one leg up to the side, back, over, and around the ropes, hooking the rope behind your toe.
3. Gently lower your body down beneath the ropes.
4. With the same hand as your leg, grip the rope at about your chest.
5. With your other hand, grip the rope as far up as you can reach with your thumb pointed away from your body.

Directions – Backward
1. Begin with your free leg. Keeping it extended, move it forward, then up and around the rope.
2. Let your hips, then shoulders, follow the corkscrew motion that you started with your leg, until you have moved all the way around the rope and are back in the starting position.

Directions – Forward
1. Begin the rotation by pushing your bent arm over and around the rope.
2. OPTIONAL Cheat: Bring your free leg up and out and swing it towards the ground to gain a momentum advantage.
3. Twist your hips to face the ground to propel your shoulder over the rope.
4. Let your shoulder begin a corkscrew motion in which your hips then leg follow your shoulder over the ropes.

*The more stretched out on the rope you are, the closer your torso will be to the ropes and the easier it will be to get your shoulder over the ropes.

*This move is less mentally intimidating that the rest, as you are not “tangled up” in the rope and aren’t really going upside-down. Just like Pallussineq, the corkscrew motion required for this move is relatively easy when starting with your leg. It is a little more difficult with the shoulder first, so save that for after you have mastered the backward variation.
