Owl: From a sitting position with hands gripped above your head, lift yourself until your feet are resting on the bar, knees bent, perched like a bird. Bring your head in front of the hoop. Can hold on or your arms.
Birdie: From owl position (or with feet perched on bar), straighten one leg until your thigh is resting on the bar. Bring opposite leg straight down behind the hoop. Grab apparatus in the middle on either side. Shift weight forward to the thigh of back leg, straightening arms and pressing chest outward.
*To get OUT, fold forward, slide hands down and bring head and torso back around to other side of hoop (like a forward roll or somersault). Dismount or hook straight leg back onto the bar and pull yourself back onto apparatus.
