Pole Trick Tutorial:

Russian Layback Elbow Stand and Handstand

 

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.
