This pop is really exciting when we begin working it as it is one of the first  inverted pops we can attempt and asks for a good deal of trust in our partnership. In this video we go over the nuances of how to generate power and transfer force as well as the concept of "positive pressure". and how we can utilize the idea to help maintain connectedness as we transition from shape to shape.
