Posted:ok basically what i;m doing is a butterfly on the side and then i bring it up over my head and back down to the other side. sometimes it goes really really smoothly but a lot of the time when i try to take it overhead i manage to slam the chain into some part or other of my fingers that didn't want to meet the chain... i guess i'm wondering what i should be trying to do to keep it going smoothly overhead cause i really don't knwo what i'm doing differently when it goes smooth over with no collisions....

Posted:Are you talking about a forward butterfly, bring it up overhead, turning around into a reverse butterfly? If you are, I agree, sometimes I can get it smoothly, sometimes I crack myself on the top of the head. From playing with it for a while, I think it's got to do with a flick of the wrist to make it stay smooth.If you're not talking about that, just ignore everything I've said

Posted:ummm, overhead butterfly, if youre just bringing it back and forth over your head, all you really have to do is move your hands back and forth, it sounds silly, but its really all it takes, keep em together and move em back and forth, almost silly if you just dothe motion...
