Posted:There are as many beats as you can make, either being flexible, or wrapping the chains. I've only ever seen 5bts done without wraps.

There will be plenty of info in old threads if you do a search for it

Posted:7 beats BTB without wraps. Id like to see that one.

::Imagines locking elbows BTB::

Isnt that like in grade school when ya told girls to touch their elbows behind their backs?


Let's turn those old bridges we crossed into ashes.
We'll blaze a new trail,
and torch the rough patches.

Posted:not really I find its easier (for me at least.. to keep twisting my arms up.. mainly my writst.. and it just takes a reach of the wrists around each other and between a quarter and a half extra twist in your arms.. depending on your flexibility...


a bit diffcult with those nasty strap handles.. I use half a glowstick for handles, because I find normal glowsticks are too long..
