Other Names: Two-Position Straddle Whip

Swing out with your hands close together. At the frontend, lift your legs up in front of you and place the soles of your feet on the bar, either side of your hands with your butt up close to the bar. At the backend, straighten both legs, keeping them apart and fold your body with your head forwards. At the frontend, let go and unfold to catch.

The initial position of this trick is the same as the 'Frog' catch.
