MattNM moving from the sit start into the stand up portion of the problem. This is the crux for some, getting the left foot up without releasing the right.

  V8-
[Hide Comment] I actually found the sit-start to be slightly easier than the standing start, although the ratings should probably stay as-is. The moves are less awkward for the sit start, even if they are slightly more strenuous.

Don't let the V8 rating turn you away if you're looking for a good way to do this problem. Mar 31, 2008

[Hide Comment] I agree with Peter, the sit flows nicely and feels much more natural than the stand. Fantastic line. Bring some pads! Oct 2, 2018
