          June challenge seems very great!
          Maybe there’s a problem with the visualization in the site? it seems like cropped in the bottom and I can’t see the control buttons that usually are showed under the video.

              Hmmm, it is different. Try viewing the video in picture-in-picture mode, the little icon in the right lower corner of a big square with an arrow to a smaller square. There are control options in that view.

                    I understand. The picture in picture icon is available once you start the video, that view option will have a control bar.

                        Came here to see if anyone else is having the same issue! Can’t download on phone or computer, and there is no control bar on either.

                          Will see if there is something that can be adjusted on the back end. Not sure yet how to download the video in this format however a control bar does pop up in the picture-in-picture view. Once you start the video, a small icon of a bigger box with and arrow pointing to a smaller box will pop up in the lower right corner. That view offers a control bar.

                            Is there any other way to get out of the wrap at the bottom of the 2nd part of the drop? I want to do the drop but don’t have enough height to do the 3rd part of the drop. Any options would be appreciated!

                              lovely sequence this month!
                              I have some question. First one is about the footlock. could we use an half foot lock or a eggbeater footlock? Could there be some contraindications?
                              The second one is about the third part of the drop. There’s a way to try it without passing for the first 2? Could we try it making the wrap from zero?
                              Thank you!

                                Is anyone else having issues with the mini rig elbow roll being very pinchy and painful? I feel like I’m kind of plopping into it as opposed to doing it smoothly like Lydia and I’m wondering if that contributes to the pinching? Any help appreciated!

                                    Will add to the Q&A list to see if Lydia has any suggestions.

                                      Yup! Same here. I feel like I’ll love it but for now it scrapes my biceps tendons.

                                        Now I have nasty bruises on both inner biceps. I don’t know how to share my photo so you’ll have to imagine them.

                                        So excited! I wanted to learn an elbow roll and now here it is! Same as Christine. I’m poppy and pinchy. Kinda feel like there’s not room for my elbows next to my breeders hips😂🤦🏼‍♀️

                                          Me too!!!!!! My biceps are SO bruised and sore. I have found that making sure the cross is as far down in my lower back as possible, and then keeping my lats pulled down tight and shoulder girdle strong does help, but my skin gets pinched every time! Really hope there’s a “magic trick” for this?!

                                              Oh thanks! I will stay away from this move for now because of the bruises, but I think I did as you suggested. Let me know if you find the magic solution!

                                                Hi

                                                I was trying to watch the Q & A replay on Crowdcast for this month but there is an error or no video loaded on both my browser or the app. This has never been an issue before…

                                                  Hi!

                                                  Last month, I could not submit a video due to a nasty back spasm. This month I caught up and could record the May and June challenges.
                                                  Could I submit both and get feedback?

                                                  Thank you🙂

                                                      Glad to hear you are doing better! Your June submission will first go towards stars and feedback. If there is time after all videos are reviewed, you may receive feedback for May as well. Certainly submit both, we love seeing progress in what you all post here!

                                                      Thanks so much for the Q&A tips on elbow roll. We just sailed Fiji to Vanuatu for 4 days. Now our anchorage is so rolly that, ironically, I cannot try the roll (or any aerials). But I definitely had a tightly closed elbow angle, so now I have hope! And the splitty bit is fun. If I don’t submit on time know that I will do this sequence ASAP regardless.
