Contortion Acrobatics Test

On the floor lying on the tummy.
Again, this exercise could not be simpler. The student is on the floor on her tummy and does the exercise positions that follow.
Position TBB1 is the start and the student arches the back, assisted by the hands pushing.
The feet are raised as TBB2 and the student tries to get the feet to the shoulders.
When this is achieved she can progress to TBB3 where she will be able to grasp each foot (one at a time) and pull it. Eventually the back will become more supple and the student will get the foot over the shoulder at which time a new exercise providing a challenge needs to be given.
Once the student is able to easily get each foot over her shoulder doing either the side back bend (SBB series) or the tummy back bend (TBB series) it is time to change and provide a greater challenge. SBB and TBB may be given at the same time to provide variation.
