Yamawaki Drill High Bar

Hehct swing with straps

The drill is performing with straps. The Hecht tap begins after the stemme and is completed to above handstand. The higher the better. The body should be fully extended until horizontal on the downswing. At horizontal on the downswing, the heels begin to lead the swing with the back pressure exerted against the bar by the hands ensuring an arch. The heels continue to lead until just prior to the bottom of the swing. At this point, the hips relax and the body turns backwards in a hollow through the bottom dragging with a lead through the upper back and shoulders and releasing into a tight arch and secondary heel drive toward the handstand. This secondary heels drive shortens the body and creates a turnover dynamics that will accelerate the body toward above handstand. After improving, next step is Hecht front giant in a row.
