Materials: Table or chair


Exercise description

A volunteer stands on a table or chair. They stand with their body upright and their arms by their side. Then they fall backwards (with their back towards the floor), while the rest catch them by standing in two rows in pairs facing each other, with their arms interlaced into a net to catch the person falling.


Type of exercise:


15-60 min


It is very important that the person falling keeps their body rigid so as to avoid injury. The participants with their arms interlaced into a net should take particular care to make sure the person falling does not hurt their neck. This exercise should only be done if there are at least a few people familiar with it from before.

This exercise can also be done as part of the Trust-Building workshop.
