This Thread is for the discussion of the movement lache / swing.
Laches requires a good hand grip and upper body strength to be able to hold your body up as you 'drop' on to a poll/branch/ledge etc.
Generally, alot of Laches are seen and practised in trees but they can also be used/practiced on things like scaffolding rails and ledges and other obstacles. Laches in trees are a good opportunity and a way get training in a different environment and surroundings.
for this tense your stomach werid advice i know but it actually works throw your shoulders back just before your about to go forward onto another branch or rail etc swinging is sometihnk i like to train its good to build upper body strength
It will build muscle endurance....
Why would you throw your shoulders backwards? You want to push them forward along with your chest gaining as much height as you can allowing you to come down and resit against the downwards force
but, gotta say this - brad, the abs are the core muscles, they maintain posture in the lower parts of your body, and are technically an involuntary muscle in this sense. your abs are constantly working on something like this; hence, if you train & rip muscle fibres (abs) you do a pull up, and can feel it hurting the abs.
personally, pushing the shoulders is nothing i practice, its not the main thing to focus on. you want to curve your legs upwards, and when you release, thrust your hips forward to get the full momentum from your swing
