Standing on the knees and toes of bent legs with the arms dropped down to the sides, raise one straight arm and stretch it to the side level with the shoulder (Photo 214). The wrist of this hand should be bent so as to make the palm face away from the body, the fingers pointed upwards. Straining all the muscles of the legs, arms, torso and neck, firmly fix this position of the body. With an inhalation, shift the center of gravity center of the fixed body to the side of the raised arm and fall towards this side onto the palm as smooth as possible. Bend the arm after the palm touches the floor, and use the muscles of the arm to control the fall as much as possible, thereby changing the position to lying face down on the side on one bent arm, one knee and one toe (Photo 215). Inhale in this position, and, with an exhalation, use a powerful impulse to push off the floor with the supporting arm. Toss the straight body in the air, catch the balancing point and stop in the initial position standing on the knees and toes with one arm stretched to the side level with the shoulders (Photo 214).
Thereafter, change the position of the arms, make the same fall and push off to the other side.
