Most of what I've learned at Circus Space has been geared towards this moment. No longer will tricks end with a Jen-shaped imprint on the crash mat. Instead I'll be caught mid-air and swing as part of a hanging human totem pole.
That's the plan, anyway. To make the catch, I need to execute the trick perfectly. All the timing, positions and movements must be spot on to ensure I can be swept up by the catcher. A lot of this relies on having a lot of core strength. Although I'm much stronger than I used to be, it's still a work in progress and this vest from Gilly Hicks certainly won't let me forget that!
