Standing Roll

Trick ID: 421
Also known as: Standing Penny Roll, Cookie Roll

Back somersault from a Standing position

#Standing on the bar


Swing out from the platform, bring your legs up at the front end, pass them under the bar and hold them straight in front of your face in a whip position. At the backend, push your straight legs over the top of the bar and follow with your body. Let go of the bar and grab the trapeze cables. Pull yourself quickly into a sitting position. Once seated, use the cables to pull yourself to standing. As you approach the frontend, lean backwards and push your feet (and the bar) up to the sky. Let go of the cables and give your hands for the catch.

This trick is analogous to the Seat Roll (or 'Penny Roll'), but from a Standing position.
