Within this position is meant the conventional crocodile, which is balanced by the base at the upper arm of the flyer. The elbow is held as close to the center of gravity as possible within the hipbone. For that a shortening of the corresponding page is necessary.
The opposite hip is held up.

The crocodile with contact point in the hands is a form of the one-armed handstand!
