Side fulls
« on: June 13, 2012, 02:21:16 AM »
Anyone know of a tutorial or have any good tips on side fulls?  Just curious.

I could throw a video up, but I don't think I'm even at that point yet.  I started throwing 'em in the pit and they're both difficult and super damn fun.  People were telling me I need to kick out harder, but no one at my gym has landed them.  Once I start getting 'em better I'll progress 'em the usual ways: pit, mat in pit, matpile in pit, tumble track, mat on floor, etc.

Like cart fulls? Because I think a side full would just be an a-twist, so I'm confused :P.

Just in case you're talking about a cart full, here's a good tutorial:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5N-e3x4sua8&list=FLNWj74UdUZ38yXeLqD3Pvnw&index=23&feature=plpp_video

And more detail on getting power out of cartwheels:

I know that in the cart full tutorial he said that he never practiced cart fronts/arabians, but one of the problems that some people have when doing them is that they don't invert enough and end up doing something more like a b-twist. So the way to do that is to go back to cartwheel front/arabians so that you get the feeling of stalling and inverting before you twist.

If you're not talking about cartwheel fulls, well...I'm embarassed  :-[

Double Leg Twist
no tutorials or thoughts on it, but here's a slomo vid of a perfect one if that helps

if you want a legit side full, just do the double leg twist with terrible form.

I like Tricking and Free Running, i don't think i actually do parkour, because i do it for fun and self expression, which would change the term to free running.

Funny story though, I double leg on the opposite side I sideflip.  I sideflip right and twist left so side full works way better than dleg twist/full which is on my left side so I'd have to twist right which would be weird.

The way I do side fulls is to actually think of the side flip itself as a twist rather than a flip.  If you watch most side flips in slow motion you'll notice that your head doesn't reeeaaallly go underneath your body so it's more like a twist anyway. 

When you take off make sure you FULLY COMMIT and set for the side flip...then continue twisting your upper body faster and harder as you extend your legs a little bit to help twist faster.  If you do it right you'll land it exactly like you land your regular side flip.  But it can be a little rough if you under rotate, so be careful and definitely get it down on mats first. 

If you want I can try to make a super quick little video tutorial thing...but for the most part it's going to be lots of trail and error practice.
