Hey everyone! Today we’re looking at common mistakes in the coed toss & catch and how to fix them.
🏃🏻♂️ STANDING TOO EARLY 🏃🏻♂️
Bases standing up too quick before the flyer can start their jump results in a lower toss. This can easily be seen when the base pulls the flyer off the ground and into themselves. Ensure that bases are lifting with the arms first as the flyer jumps, then standing up fast and following through with the arms to finish the toss.
🐙 LOOSE CENTRE 🐙
This can be seen when the flyer’s butt sticks out during the toss and it travels forward. To remedy this, ensure that the flyer’s centre is tight by squeezing the core and butt. You can also have the flyer put their weight in their arms and have their chest up throughout the entire toss.
⏮ LEANING BACK ⏮
Leaning back to catch the flyer after the toss is detrimental to a base’s lower back and compromises their posture. Rather than trying to see the feet, step in & underneath the stunt in order to catch with good body alignment. This will ensure you can catch the stunt with good execution and prevent any potential injuries.
Thank you so much for tuning in! If you would like some more detailed information or just have a question about stunting, feel free to message me on Instagram (kenny_la) or Facebook (Kenny La).
