Dinner Roll tutorial

View this post on Instagram

Technique Tip Tuesday – The Dinner Roll! A fun skill with a silly name that you can add after Music Box, Rebecca Split or anything else that requires a single foot lock on one fabric. Jill uses this skill to add some pizzaz to a sequence! Keep reading for some insider tips to be Dinner Rolling with ease… • 1️⃣ Begin from a Single Foot Lock on one fabric. In the video, Jill demonstrates on the left foot. Once you have your foot lock on squat down and cross your legs. 2️⃣ Place your left hand in front of your chest and your right hand on the free fabric at approx hip level. If you place your hands too high you'll have a challenging time completing the roll. 3️⃣ Begin to roll forward. As you roll your right arm remains extended to the side and your legs stay crossed. Don't overthink the roll! Overthinking may lead to you getting stuck upside down due to loss of momentum. 4️⃣ To roll backward it's the same actions. Again, overthinking will not help you! This is one of those skills that you can get all worked up about and it ends up to be not as big of a deal as you thought. 5️⃣ If you have tight shoulders definitely spend some time warming them up followed by the range of motion exercise in the video using the fabric or band. The skill will be more intense on your extended arm. Happy Dinner Rolling! ✨Have you taken advantage of our complimentary 14 day trial of Aerial Physique TV? If not, you're missing out!

Secretary Drop technique

View this post on Instagram

Technique Tip Tuesday – The Secretary Drop Oh, the infamous Secretary Drop! Many who try it get frozen with fear the moment before they are about to drop. The Secretary is a drop that you don't have any safety or wraps holding you in, the success of the drop relies on your technique. There are many factors that can make this drop more accessible. Keep reading for some insider tips. 1️⃣ Never practice drops without a crash mat and a live experienced instructor guiding you. Trying to figure out a drop and practicing it alone or with a group of peers, is extremely dangerous and not advised whatsoever. 2️⃣ Practice walking the drop down as many times as you need, until you feel comfortable and understand the pathway. 3️⃣ If you are on a right side Secretary, the tail will be draping to your left side. When you grab the tail make sure both thumbs are pointing up, this way when you land in the drop, your hand placement is correct and you don't risk hurting your wrist. 4️⃣ Your shoulders and head lean toward the tail as your outside right leg extends to the side with a flexed foot. The moment your foot makes contact with the pole, sickle it around for support. 5️⃣ Do not take your opposing leg out from between the poles until your foot is secure, this is a very common mistake that can lead to ending in a straddle or falling. Once you are confident with the drop, the leg that is between the poles extends behind you the moment you feel your foot make contact with the pole to make the drop more dynamic. 6️⃣ Your grip and your top sickled foot are the only 2 things supporting you. 7️⃣ If you miss your foot around the pole, you'll either end on the mat as I did in the video, in a straddle, or worst case, in a fall if you lose your grip. By focusing on a firm flex and extending your leg to the side while you drop, it can help ensure the success of your foot placement. 8️⃣ Your grip is king, do not let go! 9️⃣ After you have arrived at the end of the drop you can release your top foot, pass through a straddle and come down or hook your knee and climb above it. • 🔟 Patience is key, don't force yourself into it if you don’t trust your technique yet.
