This workshop will focus on the fundamental techniques for safe and effective training of aerial straps, though most exercises will greatly increase your power and control on other apparatus. We will warm up our shoulders and core using a set of exercises designed to pre-habilitate and strengthen the shoulders. The fundamental skills students will cover are 1-arm transitions and positions (meathook, inverted straddle, nutcracker), as well as other more dynamic techniques such as flares, twists, rolls, swinging, and tempos.
Prerequisites: experience with flag/reverse meathook, multiple straight arm inversions of any kind (straddle-up, tuck-up, pike-up), 1-arm hangs with engaged shoulder for 30 seconds, and 30 second wall handstand or 1-minute plank.
Registration for both days is not necessary, though the content will be more complete if attending both.
Cost: $120 both days, $65 for one day
Day 1: Friday, April 13 @6:30-8:00p
