I am trying to perform the 'skin the cat' exercise properly, in order to improve shoulder flexibility, strength, etc.
However, while I am okay with the hanging part, I have an issue trying to get my legs over my head (the initial stage) without the assistance of the hanging bar. When I do it, I jump and lock my legs quickly enough in order to prevent my legs from falling down - as a result, I end up swinging a lot.
I assume that I am too weak to pull my legs up? What can I do to improve my strength to freely lift my legs, and through the gap? Or should I just be patient until I can finally do it?
Thanks in advance.
