This is the best way I can describe it--

Bend your arm and put your hand palm-down on your shoulder. Look down at your elbow. About an inch up from the tip of your elbow should be a nice flat spot. If you press with your fingers in the area, there should be a small indent. Now, realistically, without an acrylic this "indent" wont help with the stall; I've found that it's more of a balancing act and less of a "natural indentation where the ball lies". Being that there really isn't any muscle here, the tightness of your arm and surrounding muscles doesn't really affect it, but the height of your elbow will. With your elbow in the air and your hand on (or near) your shoulder, check your reflection and see how parallel your arm is to the ground. The more parallel, the better.

Good luck, sir!

thank you for helping me find this spot i can finaly get it to stay without much thought. now the hard part rolling it there :rolling: :balance: and getting it to stay :?

Actually, there's no reason why the ball could'nt roll on legs as well as on arms, except that we usually stand on legs (at least one), and that we are more at ease with fine control of hand than foot. (this isn't a too big problem for the roll from foot to leg, but it is for the other direction).

I you ever have worked seriously foot catches, you know that half of the problem comes from the floor foot and balance. For legs roll, you have to keep balance longer than for an instant catch.

But there's a way to keep more relaxed, and to practise legs rolls even without flexibility : sit down on the floor.

Here are a couple of advices for the hard direction (toward the foot) :

Practise first foot catch in this position (sit on the floor). Then put the ball on the leg just after the knee, give it a tiny impulse to let it roll half way to foot. The path is along the bone, on the external side. Then finish the move as to do a footcatch.

For flexibility, the only thing I can say is don't wait to be old to work on it : it's usefull (necessary ?) in the daily life ... The first time I saw Lady Orange( EJC 2003 I think) doing a beautiful legroll, I thought it's only a women's thing (or F. Brunn). Now I lift the leg easily ...
If you find time to practise, find time to warm up before and stretch after your session. If you're not too sure about how to do, try nevertheless, but keep it easy and breath ! And find someone you can ask to. The more you'll do it, the more you'll fell how to do it and why you need it.
For muscles, the way I worked it out was relaxation : stand on one foot, and lift the knee (bend your leg : it's lighter !) Play with your foot ; open the hip and do the same in this position ; come again with leg leg in front of you and extend the leg while trying to keep the knee at the same place (breath, relax), .... You'll soon see that you're working the right muscles. Work what you need to fell your muscles tired, with duration rather than with intensity. If you do this eyes closed, it's furthermore very good for balance. Be careful with muscles : don't hurt yourself, let the time to the body to adapt to this new contraint you ask him daily.

For Garneta and antipodist work : everything is possible ! You can find here the 2009 christmas video I did (too quickly and too lately) to show some tricks I was working on. Ther was no iso at this time, but it comes slowly, and the feet circle I tented (you can only see a quick throw before I cut) is sometimes real now !
