Exercise Performance
Approach your vertical base, and get into the basic clutch hold. From here, get into a Diagonal Tuck Clutch. Once you are in position, keep your trunk diagonal and extend both legs outwards until they are perfectly straight. At this point, your trunk and straight legs should form a diagonal line. Hold the position, breathing normally. This step is a useful way to begin working to the clutch flag, because the less strenuous diagonal position can often be held well by athletes even if they don’t yet have the strength to hold the full clutch flag with a horizontal body.
