Posted: Hullo, Having just purchased my first set of poi yesterday I have come across a problem. This may just be me and my infexible self but I can't do behind the back moves. I can do 5 beat weaves and butterflies and the rest. I can pull off doing one beat behind by back but when i try to sustain any move behind my back i just keep hitting myself. Practise may make perfect but I was wondering if there were any tips you may have. (lets all point and laugh at the n00b ) Ta very much.
Posted: Practise may make it perfect, its truth, the pain you feel(its "delta muscle" mostly) you feel cause you move your body inna way you did not befor. If it hurts, stop it. You'll better to make some basic muscle heating befor practising, to start up your body.
Try it with one hand fist, in wheel pland and wall plane and both directions. After a while you find backward spinning far easier(especially wheel plane).
Than put both hands together and close to each other and try to spin in parallel behind your back the same way like with one hand.
Than slowly try to separate your hands and slowly split the timing to get Figure 8 behind the back.
Looking into mirror can help you to clear your planes too.
