Russian layback is one of the popular pole tricks each poler out there, must try.
It's got angles that tests out your balance and core strength. From the arched back, the crossed legs, and that last beautiful touch to point your toes to show off those elongated and perfectly lined legs - all coming together on an invert. This pole trick is definitely packed with elements from art forms such as yoga and ballet.
Let Gianna Locher of IG: @giannasophie teach you how to nail this pole technique through the elbow stand or the hand stand variations.
Get into your elbow stand position by bringing your hands around your head and cup grip the pole.
Push your knees straight and walk forward till your back touches the pole.
Kick your legs up into the elbow stand position.
Once in position, bring your legs to one side.
Hook one leg around the pole and bring the other leg around. Try both sides, to figure out which side is most comfortable and looks best on you.
When the legs are placed to your liking, make sure to push your head away from the floor and shoulders away from the pole. Remember to arch your back as you do this.
To exit out of the elbow stand position, straighten the legs close to the pole.
Hook one foot to the pole to balance your body. Slowly bring the free leg down, followed by the other leg (one used to hook on the pole) till both legs are back on the floor.
