Now here's the good stuff: The Head over Heals ROOF. Little clinic for Paul Wiggins to study in his bed

First, you let go your feet and take an extreme position (like Javier). Then you do a one-arm pullup and chalkup as demonstrated by Dan.

Then you contract your abs to move your legs up while breathing heavily and saying, "This is technical!". A heel hook puts you in a rest position where you can chalkup again, as shown by Mark.

You get ready for the reachy move by bringing forth the French attitude in you and pull down hard to get over the roof
