Not getting vertical

Unread postby asaleh » Sat Apr 20, 2013 7:29 pm

Lately I have been getting on bigger poles. Though I am seeing improvement I am still not getting vertical and I am flagging out. The following link is a video of a 4 left jump.
-13 140
- Bungee 13
- step 50 ft.

-13 160
11.9 bungee
-step 75 ft.


Please any advice would be appreciated.
Your only as good as your last jump.

just do alot more of gymnastics! i had alot of trouble at this stage too. even handstands help. you have to get more comfortable with being upside down and you will definitely start to get more and more inverted. p.s make sure your elbow comes inside the bend of the pole!
get over or get out
