Jessie, that sounds like a very productive session. The combo's you described sound rather difficult, good job.

Jessie, that last practise session sounds seriously impressive - and seriously fun!  smile

Re: Next Video

I got out yesterday to practice for a while.  I was concentrating on form and limbering up my shoulder.  All in all, it was a pretty good practice session, although it was cut short by thunderstorms.  I did find it kind of neat to watch the wind gusts blow the loop to the side as it traveled down the thong, however.

I'll give it a try, Dad, but it's going to be really hard...kind of like trying to saw something in half using a banana.

Re: Next Video

Scott, practicing in wind can be challenging but it's also a good training tool.
If you can keep your form and accuracy in wind it shows how well you can adapt when throwing. It also makes calmer days seem a lot easier.
Good job.

Re: Next Video

OKay, so here's the thing.  Yesterday I was smacking myself up pretty good.  Partly, I think, because the wind was blowing pretty hard, but today I think I figured out a trick.  When you normally underhand flick, you keep it at an even plane directly at your side.  During this exercise, kind of flick it directly in front of you.  As the thong comes up, grab it with your other hand and bring it down.  you have less inches to move it from side to side, which I think kind of screws up the cracking plane  and makes the thong want to wrap up on your arm as you bring it down into the cattleman's crack.  I don't think it's exactly wrong, but with the wind still blowing it helped.

Due to rising costs, dirty deeds are no longer done dirt cheap.

Re: Next Video

Hey everyone smile I like the look of this whipcrack. I have a lot of catching up to do but I am going to give this one a go. Kind of reminds me of the one where you switch hands for the crossover (which I seem to be very fond of using) although I haven't got the switch properly sorted.

Re: Next Video

Thanks for the tip Jessie.

I'm feeling much better today and will start practicing.

Re: Next Video

I will start by apologizing foe the very poor quality of the video.
I'm actually ashamed to show this to you guys, but unfortunately I'm already far behind with practicing and really wanted to share something.

Also, my mobile-tripod holder is destroyed and I haven't bought a new one yet.

Anyway, the end of todays practice. There still a long road to go. Thank god it's a fun road. smile

There's some weird coloring going on in the video, it's not a bad trip.
Sorry

That's looking very good Sven.
For not practicing, it's very smooth.

Re: Next Video

Great job on practice guys. I enjoyed the videos...

Re: Next Video

Jessie, thank you for sharing that trick!

Sven, your practice looks very good!
You seem to have gotten the hang of the right moment for the swivel (your session looks very fluid) - good job!

So far I've only been practicing this exercise with a mini bullwhip while beeing seated on a chair My appartment doesn't have high ceilings, therfore I can only practice while sitting down. I'm not used to using smaller bullwhips nore have I ever tryed to crack a whip while beeing seated, but it's better than not practicing at all.

All the best

Re: Next Video

Ben, you are doing the best you can with the limits imposed on you at this time.
I imagine practicing while sitting down is a good thing. It helps with not relying on your body movements to complete a crack, focusing on your arms only.

Re: Next Video

Thanks Ron!

It fealt kind of wierd to crack a whip while beeing seated at first but it works and I'm getting more and more used to it.

All the best

Re: Next Video

Thank you Ben.
Even practising seated will make you get the hang of it. The right moment of the swivel, the motion.
I think you're doing the best you can right now.
