So somehow my WinAmp alarm got screwed up and reset to midnight instead of 12pm, so I ended up sleeping in until like 2:30 and having to head straight to work today. Phoo. I was hoping to do some stuff before work. Ah well. I'll be sure to start setting my alarm clock as backup from now on. Lesson learned.
So I finally balled up and tossed my newest trick on trampoline at the gym tonight: stomach drop double front flip to feet. It took me like twenty or so tries to turn it over, and by then my knees were purple from kabooming the trampoline. The method of kabooming involves landing slightly high on your chest, and then slamming your knees or feet into the trampoline a split second later to create forward rotation up off your stomach. It's better to kaboom off your knees rather than your feet tho, since then your legs are already over your head when you start to flip.
I've been tossing stomach drop front 1 and 3 (1 flip, with an extra 3/4 rotation to back) for years, but only recently have I considered holding on for that extra 1/4 to my feet. It wasn't half as bad as I thought it would be. The only downside, of course, is the abuse to my knees (and a bit to my elbows as well. Trampolines are very coarse). Still, it's a bad ass trick that not a lot of people can claim to have done. So I'm happy.
For my next trick? Well I got my fliffuss (2 flips with a 1/2 twist), so the next progress would be a 2 and 3 (two flips with an extra 3/4 rotation to back). This is from feet, btw. I dunno. 2 and 3 is kinda intimidating, even for a crazy son of a bitch like me. But maybe next week [smile]. And after that I can start tossing triffuses (3 flips with a 1/2 twist). I love trampoline!!
Okay, me and my busted up knees are crawling into bed. After I double and triple check my damn alarm. [razz]
