Hello and welcome to Tulsa tumble talk with justice tumbling company, the one and only Tulsa tumbling show where we your Tulsa tumbling experts. Answer the questions that we get from parents and athletes on a daily basis. We are your hosts Coulton cruise and rusty breaths slur and we are the owners of justice tumbling company in Tulsa, Oklahoma. What’s up guys? It’s a rusty and Colton here. We’re going to be going over standing fulls today on this podcast. Um, this is one that uh, probably unfortunately most kids won’t even need to listen to, but we are working to change that. We are working to get all of our kids, all of our athletes, um, through intermediate into advanced and into elite level classes. So standing full even though in the past it was something that very few were doing. Um, we are wanting to get progressions and so that every kid that gets a standing tuck or I running full will eventually be working on standing fulls.
Yeah, standing fulls are a fun skill and it’s one of my favorites. It goes, I can still throw and I hope I always can. Um, it’s also like a talk. It’s one of those skills. Once you learn, it’s pretty easy to land over and over again and to keep it, keep it fresh as long as you’re conditioning your body. Um, but it is, when it comes down to it all it is, is a bad technique full. It’s, it’s, it’s hard to make it standing fuller pretty. Um, I think if you asked gymnast about standing fulls, they’ll probably laugh out them because they just look crazy. It’s literally a bent up, tucked in like
every now and then you’ll see, you’ll see that one kid who does have a really pretty standing full. Uh, but most of the time they’re tucked, especially whenever it comes to most boys. Um, it’s just, let’s just roll our body over as fast as we can and, and make it happen.
And now back in the day, there was maybe, I think at the time when we were in high school, there were only three people who had ever learned at the standing doubles or something. So like now standing doubles, there’s all these sick free cause out there doing it standing doubles like or nothing
at our a and r open or not our open gym. It was our, um, our lockin, one of the, one of the boys that was there was working on a standing devil. Yeah, you can just twist it. It’s crazy. It’s crazy. Um, but anyway, so standing fulls, we’re going to be going over the three parts of every, uh, every skill, right? With the standing, standing tumbling. There’s obviously the set, there’s the body position with standing fulls, you do have a body position that twists. Um, but then there is the finish. That’s really important too.
But even before getting into that, you should not be working standing fulls unless you have a perfect standing tech. If you’re hitting a standing tech a hundred out of a hundred times then and you have all the other progressions up to a standing full, then it’s time to start working on standing folds. It’s not something you need to try to rush to get to or anything like that. Um, you should learn a to, to full a wonderful a cartwheel full all before standing fulls.
That’s all about those progressions guys. Do. We don’t want to ever steer away from those progressions. We do have those few except exceptions that are very, very, very rare. Um, but outside of those exceptions, we want to stay on the path of progressions as much as possible.
Yes, if you can do all those skills, um, you’re training to learn to get your butt over your head, you no matter what on a full, um, wonderful. You want really straight legs, two to four really straight legs. Um, but sometimes you’ll see kids go into wonderful and there’ll be a sketchy take off and they pulled her knees and it looks like a standing full. So if you can learn to do that, then you’re already like mentally preparing your body to do is standing for Cartwheel fulls. You’re tucked up anyways. It almost looks identical to how you’re standing full. As if I have a kid who can do a cartwheel full but they haven’t worked standing fulls, I can kind of know what their standing fulls are going to look like just based off their cartwheel full. So making sure and that’s a skill that’s become popular and just like the last few years, that’s a huge skill. Now, cartwheel fulls, um, it conditions your body for your standing full. So you should be able to do all those skills. You should be able to do a open tech. You should be able to do a standing tech up onto an elevated surface before we even get into doing drills or just spotting standing full.
Well, here’s the thing is that um, standing full is probably the most elite single standing skill that kids will learn. It’s, it’s most kids that we work with, we’ll, uh, we’ll work standing tux. That’s almost a guarantee. Um, standing full is something that comes down further down the line when your body is conditioned and not only your body but your mind is conditioned as well to the point where, uh, your fear is you are completely fearless. You’re, you, you have, you don’t have a fear there anymore.
Oh. To say that there aren’t young kids was standing falls cause there are a lot of crazy
because there are but they, but they, you know, to get to where they are, there was a lot of hard work involved.
Even a nurse in our last week, we discount one of our athletes sustaining for one. She’s what, 13, 12 2012. Yeah. So and I definitely wasn’t throwing standing full out 12 years old. So a lot of these kids are way past whatever I was and that’s my favorite thing and coaching is, my goal is I don’t care about my tumbling anymore. I remember coaching with guys who were like still cheering and they’re coaching and they’re, it’s hard to be a coach when you’re still worried about your tumbling career if you’re a competing still. Um, and athletes tumbling. My goal now is to not make myself a better tumbler. I still, I still enjoy it, but now it’s my job to try to transfer my knowledge to athletes. So athletes are doing all the advanced skills I was doing. Um, I get more satisfaction out of that. So standing for, it’s not going to be, it’s a lot of the same preparation for a standing tech.
Um, you should have the same dip, same arms swinging all working together. When you push off your toes, that explosive push through your toes, your arms won’t be set straight up and down. Um, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a standing for that house, like a straight arm lift, straight up and down. It’s always going to be, if you spend left, it’s your left arm will kind of be your spin arm and it will be a little bit more out to the side. So kind of like a muscle man, like you’re flexing, but out to the side as you’re pushing off your toes, that’s going to start your rotation of your upper body. And then as you push off your toes, driving your knees, shins, and toes instead of directly over your head like a Tuck, it’ll be over one shoulder.
Now, because this is audio only, no video, uh, you guys didn’t actually see rusty doing the motion, but he was, uh, and it’s important. Remember when every seat he says out to the side, it doesn’t mean like arms out straight in front of you and then pulling to the side, like pulling to the left or pulling to the right. It’s getting your arms up by your ears, like he said, the muscle man up and then, then slightly over to the side. Uh, I know that you, you’ve talked about kids who like literally take their arms and they like wind up, they go to the left and then they swing as hard as they can to the right. We don’t want that.
It’s a barrel and they’ll lay, yeah, yeah. It’s hard to make clean. That’s hard to do. Like toe falls out of something like that. You want the same arms swing or at least the preparation of that,
there is still some type of set. It’s, that’s important to remember.
Your elbows still have to be above your shoulders. So if their elbows are getting stuck below your shoulders in the spin, you might be able to land it out of a miracle. It might be the lowest standing for lever, but you want to get some sort of height into your spin so you have a lot of time to get your butt over your head back to your landing. Um, the main thing you’d see on these, and if you’re spotting him, you will get kicked in the back of the head and out of nowhere, um, if kids trail their feed behind, if they tend to kick themselves on the butt in a standing tech standing full, it’s going to trail behind. It will feel like it’s pulling their ab muscles like they can’t get their body over. And as they’re responding at those, the back of their heels will clip the back of your head or the side of your head and it doesn’t feel great.
Do you understand what we ate? What exactly we mean by kicking your heels to your butt? If you would stand up and leave your knees down, knees down, and just kick your heels to the butt. That right there is not a tuck. Um, but a lot of people feel like it is whenever they’re doing their tux. Um, what we want is for your leg to stay in that 90 degree angle and then you’re pulling your knees to your chest and depending on which way you spin, you’re going, you’re pulling it that direction or the other. Um, and so it kicking your heels to your butt is not going to help you rotate. It’s just going to create some awkward like stall before you pull your knees over and it’s, it’s gonna feel really weird
so much like you’re running full after you push off your toes after you’ve hit that like muscle man set out to the side as you start rotating and pulling her but over her head, cause it should look like a flip your buck coming over your head. It should not be a barrel roll where it looks like your butt is like swinging out to the side. Yes. Because you’ll see that a lot as well. And people who are just worried about spinning. Um, so the house to come over your head with your niche, hands and toes coming over, that’s going to create a tape tight ball. Your head has to be under your armpit, like are running full. Your arms have to be tied to whatever side you’re spinning. And then if your head is in the right spot, on a standing full, you will see your landing and you try to drive your knees to that landing
just because you see the landing. Just as you see where your feet are going to go, it does not mean open up from that point or your, if you’re a boy, you’re gonna smack some stuff together and it’s going to hurt really bad. Um, if you’re a girl, you was going to land on your side and it’s going to feel uncomfortable. Um, but do not open up. Don’t let that be the time where you decide to open up and stop spinning. You still have a little bit of spin left that you have to finish to get those toes up underneath you. Um, and then always the finish. We want your chest up, we don’t want you to kind of pipe down to get those toes to touch the ground and finish that, that full.
And like any skill, we want feet together, knees together on the landing, especially in any spinning skill to protect your knees. Definitely landing, standing fulls as tight together as possible. Protecting ACL, MCL, PCL is all that good stuff. Um, standing fulls, the main issue I see as the finish, I can teach kids how to get high to spin. It’s finding their feet, especially when nobody is there. That kind of like talks, that fear of that kick out. Um, I have a lot of athletes who are right there on standing fulls and they can even throw them by themselves and to like their crash mat, but it’s as they’re finishing, instead of keeping their head end of their arm pit and seeing their landing and pull to it, as soon as they’re about to finish, their head comes away from their armpit almost looking up toward the ceiling. Like they’re just trying to see where they’re going. Like they’re, they’re air awareness isn’t there. So really running fool’s too sometimes. Yeah. So perfecting that landing, get real comfortable with the landing. I’ve seen coaches use the Roli wedges and not the wedges, the octa gums, outstanding full drills like jumping up and rolling over them. Um, I use the drill where you can put the cheese mat and you’d do the jump almost Arabian to your back on the cheese mat and then rolling down trying to finish your full. Um, that’s how that boy learned it.
That’s how you, that’s how you figure out the set, the jump, getting up high and then pulling your butt over, uh, over your head to finish. It’s, it’s an important part. Um, so with that being said, there are conditioning, um, techniques that we want you to remember, always with fools, ankles and knees. Uh, that conditioning is really, really important. Don’t forget about that. We want you to be doing a leg lifts calf, right? Calf raises, um, Aaron, me doing a toe raises, rise raises rises. Yeah. And, uh, um, that’s gonna help your shins, your ankles, build up those, those muscles around the tendons so that you are, uh, uh, a little bit more safer, a little bit safer and a, and then the conditioning for the jump to get your butt up high enough, um, is going to be a bunch of frog jumps. Um, we’re going to do wall sits. There’s lots of things that we can be doing right.
Core is core to core is going to be crucial for just like Tux even more so for standing for
um, burpees are another good one. It’s, it’s a, it’s a fast paced, um, condition conditioning for your body, but it will definitely help getting up, getting back down, getting back up and back down.
