A body position that requires the flyer to shift the center of balance, also requires a strong stunt group to balance out any movement. The crossbow is performed by entering into a heel-stretch and with the opposite hand grip the “base” ankle. The flyer should then be holding the “pulled” foot and “base” leg, while the flyer’s torso is parallel to the ground/stunt group. This is considered an elite body position and requires the flyer to maintain complete control of their body. A perfect center/middle split is imperative to make sure this skill looks effortless. A crossbow is the equivalent of doing a pancake stretch in the air.
