This workshop is part 1 of a 2 part series and 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. Students will start with a set of exercises designed to prehab and strengthen the shoulders and then cover fundamental skills like: beats, meathook, inverted straddle, nutcracker, croc, support, flag, and side balance. The end of the workshop will focus on 2 and 1-arm spinning using the dynamic technique of flares to invert to different positions. This workshop will be beneficial for beginners on straps as well as aerial artists who work on other apparatus, but want to work on skills like beats/meathooks/reverse meathooks and strength. Prerequisites: safe inversions of any kind (straddle-up, tuck-up, pike-up), 1-arm hangs in wrist lock with engaged shoulder for 5-15 seconds, and 20 second wall handstand or 1-minute plank.
