    WAG Level 3 Front Hip Circle Deductions...

    Hi there, I'm wondering if it's "better" to compete a front hip circle with bent arms or use the spot in an attempted (but probably failed) front hip circle with straight arms. My daughter can reliably complete a front hip circle with bent arms and equally reliably fail to complete a front hip...

    I have a girl who simply can't do a back hip circle. We've been trying since July! She just throws her had back and never gets back to the bar after her cast.

    Front Hip Circle, Bent Legs

    So I recently got my front hip circle, but my legs and arms are bent. I try to tell myself to keep my legs straight throughout the skill but for some reason they always bend or I just flop off the bar and don't make it all the way around. Does anyone have any tips or drills?? Thanks!
