Dryland Activities:

Dryland – Streamline Roll

Find a partner. Lay on your backs foot to foot. Heads away from each other.

Get in Streamline position.

Roll together in the same direction for 1 full roll, or 2.

Feet must remain connected, and bodies should roll together to earn a “success.”

Fail when feet fall apart, streamlines fall out, or when one body turns but the other doesn’t.

Partner Pull Position 11

One person bends at the waist and the knees extending arms forward.
Partner grabs wrists and pulls forward slightly, while lifting to horizontal.

Goal is to get back flat and arms flat like doing a standing position 11.

Question of the Day: What strokes does Position 11 work on?
Answer: Fly, Bk, BR, FR (all!)
Y = Roll sideways three times (full rolls)
N = Do 30 jumps and 5 sit ups.
