    Hi! You can try wrapping the leg just an inch further down the leg (towards the knee) when wrapping the double star. Sometimes that little adjustment makes a big difference. Also try to push your pelvis all the way forwards when prepping the cartwheel, as well as try to land the cartwheel with your hips pushed forwards as well with your toes towards the ground as if you’re standing up in the air. If you land in a sitting position (pike at the hips) then it hurts a lot more to go for a second rotation from there as the knot squeezes tighter. It’s all about staying super extended (finish the rotation so you’re basically hugging the pole with your toes directly under you) to avoid synching.
