Have you ever started to dropback and then all of a sudden, before your halfway committed you find yourself flying back upright, unintentionally. It's kind of like a spring, KADANG! and your back up.
I've noticed it more recently as I've been working on Mahele's nutation of the pelvis and opening of the the sit bones. I tilt my pelvis in anti clockwise, open the sit bones and then try and force my hips as far forward as possible, trying to lengthen out of my hips all the time. The other thing I've started to do is really try to straighten up through the legs.
Now if you find that point as you go back just before the spring is about to go off, you can kind of ride it back, almost bouncing on it. You can feel it wanting to throw you back upright and every time it does you push your hips a little further forward into it and bend back some more.
That's the best I can explain it. But try it and see if it starts to make sense. Anyway It's helped me to finally begin hanging back, I mean really hanging back. I still don't trust it, or myself, completely but it's coming and I'm beginning to feel more comfortable such that I can start to take a couple of breathes while hanging all the way back.
I've been wanting to post a video on this for the last couple of days while I'm still only just beginning to hang, very much work in progress. I left the bit at the beginning where I came back up via the 'spring' .
Talking about coming up I've been trying to engage the 'spring' when coming up too. Trying to come up to the point where I can engage the Spring and let it do the rest of the work. The other thing I'm thinking of is how when the spring engages the feet don't move. Mine are still splayed for the first push up, wondering if this approach might help me to overcome it.
PS. Just think how much better this is going to look on the new ipad : )
