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.
