Laurie Clinic 2

Saturday, September 17th Laurie will be back in the gym coaching two new clinincs and re-teaching the Handstand for those who missed it the first time.

Clinic Descriptions and schedule for Saturday, September 17, 2011:

11:30-12:45 The Kipping Pull-up: Get a pull-up, or make the one you have more efficient.

This clinic will cover the technique, mechanics and shaping of the kipping pull-up.  There will be an emphasis on how to use the “kip” effectively to do a pull-up. 

The clinic format will be as follows:

•  Warm-up and body positions
•  Drilling and skill development
•  Practice time to apply new skills
•  How to make a tape grip

There is no prerequisite for this clinic.

1:00-2:15 Handstands:  How to get upside down in your best possible body position, and what to do once you get there.

This clinic will be a second offering of the handstand clinics offered a few weeks ago.  No experience with handstands is necessary.  Topics covered will include: body alignment in the handstand, handstands against a wall, in free space and handstand walking. 

2:30-3:45 Advanced Bodyweight Pulling:  You say you want a muscle up?  What's that?  You have a muscle up, and now you want to do it more efficiently and get fancy with it?

Existing skills: Athletes in this clinic need to have a minimum of 1 strict pull-up, 5 continuous kipping pull-ups and 1 dip

This clinic will explore the kip found in the pull-up, aiming to develop a more powerful and efficient kip.  We will then work on a variety of pulling movements:

The pieces that come together to make a muscle up:
• Establishing the false grip
• Understanding the transition
• The strict muscle-up, and progressions to get one

Athletes with a muscle-up will look at:
• Muscle-up foundations
• Kipping muscle-ups
• Muscle-up variations: cycling and without the false grip
• Bar muscle-ups

The clinic format will be similar to the format of “the kipping pull-up.”

The cost for each clinic will be $20 and will be limited to 10 participants.
