Hello.

I'm trying to learn how to do a kip-up, but I'm just not getting it. I keep landing on my rear, or falling on my back.
Clearly, I'm doing it ALL wrong.
Can any one provide a step-by-step tutorial, or link to same?
I'm looking for a "Kip-up for Dummies" kind of thing.

Thanks!

Z

Thanks, Matt!

If I understand correctly, my legs should generate almost all the power/forward motion. How hard should I push off with my hands?

Only as much as you need. I can do a no handed kip up pretty easy, in fact for me using hands throws me off. Just experiment and find what works for you.

It can become bad. Maybe you should stregnthen your neck. Just lay down and pick your head up off the floor and hold it. Every once in a wahile rotate it a little to work the different neck muscles.

Sorry for sounding ignorant, but what is a kip up?
I'm guessing its either when you spring forward off your back (or neck), or when you spring backwards off your back/neck.

It's when you spring forward from your back.

Why are you saying this to him? It is not a myth, do not discourage someone from wanting to learn more.

It has ben discussed recently here:
