Tempo to shoulder sit

Shape:
Level:
Number of persons:
Position of the flyer: ,
Position of the base:

The base squats behind the flyer, the hands in the finger-wrist-grip.

Now make a tempo movement: The base moves the arms of the flyer sideways. The flyer bends the legs as start of the jump.

The Base brings the - now stretched - arms of the flyer again to the middle while the flyer jumps as high as possible. When he Flyer jumps from the floor, he keeps his arms tight to his sides. The Base immediately follows the jump of the Flyer and extends the jump by quickly and strongly pushing upwards from his legs.

By the momentum which the base build with his legs and which he continues with his arms, the base is able to stretch his arms. During the movement the base brings the centre of gravity of the flyer straight above himself. This is possible because the flyer is jumping a little bit to the back, and because both the base and the flyer flexed their hands a bit. On the highest point, the flyer is in an L-sit, keeps his arms straight and has the legs a bit spread.

The base then lets the flyer slowly descend into shoulder sit.

The flyer clamps his legs behind the back of the base and the base further secures the flyer by placing his hands on the flyers' upperlegs.
