The Reverse Cattleman is just exactly that. Reverse the motion that the whip made for the Cattleman's Crack and make the whip crack behind you. Because your arm will not bend the same way backwards as it does forwards, your arm motion needs to be adapted.



How To

  1. Start with the whip laying out straight in front of you
  2. Draw the whip backward and overhead in a large, extended arc
    1. Start with your arm straight, pointed slightly in front of you
    2. The handle of the whip should be in a straight line with your arm
    3. Swing your arm down and to the back
    4. When your arm is pointing straight down start turning your palm to face outward
    5. When your arm is level with the ground let your elbow bend
    6. Continue to bend your elbow until your hand is about even with your face
  3. Just about the time that the cracker will hit the ground in front of you, swing the whip backward
    1. Straighten your elbow
    2. When you reach full extension of the arm, straighten your wrist
    3. You should finish with your arm almost level with the ground, and with the whip handle pointing straight out behind you
