The Reverse Whip Crack


This one is a little tricky and most people have a tuff time learning it. It it may help to remember it's done on a vertical plane. You may also find it helpful to first practice this whip crack on a vertical plane directly in front of you. That way you can see the way the loop forms. Then when you can do it in front of you simply turn your body a quarter turn to the left and practice it. I think there are couple of reasons people have trouble with this one. The first being that when done on your side like it's supposed to be done you can't really see what is happening with the whip. The second is that it takes time to loosen up your shoulder to the point that it is accustom to moving this way. It helps to start off with the whip laid out in front of you and concentrate on pivoting your arm at the elbow. Don't rush it. This one can't be muscled. In fact the more relaxed you are in doing this crack the better it will work.

When you can do this one consistently you are ready to try figure eight whip crack.
