The Overhead Crack with a Bullwhip.
The overhead crack is also called the stockmen's crack.
I just find that for the sake of clarity using generic terms removes
As I said in the previous article on learning the forward crack with
your bullwhip all whip cracks move in a straight plane. While the forward
crack moves on a vertical plane, the overhead crack moves on a horizontal
plane. As you may imagine after watching the video forming the loop
on the outside of your arm becomes very important when learning this
crack. Without proper attention to this detail you will end up with
your bullwhip wrapped around your neck. On the up side if you have
put in the practice time to learn the forward crack you
will be able to master this one very quickly. The reason for this is
it is basically the same crack. Again it's just done on a horizontal
plane. A good way to start off learning this bullwhip crack it to swing
the whip over your head in a counter clock wise direction. Then when
you feel you are ready simply reverse the direction of the whip to
move in a clock wise circle and crack the whip. After you get the
feel of the crack by doing it this way you will find it even easier
to just swing the whip up over your head and crack it. Again take your
time and let the whip do the work. And please wear safety glasses.
Now why not give the over
hand whip crack a try.
