I got Iron Cross on the silks this weekend, so now I’m all about doing it all the darn time, because, quite frankly, I didn’t expect to be able to pwn iron cross this early in the game.
I’m case you’re wondering, Iron Cross is this:
The smaller image gives you a sense of the lines from the side.
I didn’t want to just steal someone’s actual photo and couldn’t find any public domain ones, so I hope this quick sketch gives you the basic idea.
It looks fabulous on silks or trapeze — I think it’s harder to “get” on trapeze, but once you know how to do it (and have sufficient strength), it feels very doable on either.
Today I tried it on trap again and was able to do it well. I’ll have to see if I can get a picture tonight.
Anyway, that’s what I’m obsessed with right now 🙂
