a. Introduction: A windmill is the basic powermoves, and also a very important one. DON’T skip this move if you intent to be a good break dancer. With the ability to be combo-ed with almost any other moves, a windmill is a must!
b. Difficulties : 5 out of 10
c. Basic exercise: basic hand to the stomach pose, kick up, legs swigging.
d. How to do windmills:
i. Step 1; warm up, whatever you do always warm up. Windmill uses a lot of abdominal and waist strength so make sure you warm them up properly.
ii. Start from the hand to the stomach pose, your legs splits out and lock straight. Make sure you are able to hold this pose comfortably otherwise you won’t be able to do the windmills.

iii. Swing your hips to your rotation direction; make sure you maintain the straightness of your leg.

iv. Slip your body from your hand and slide off to your shoulder and roll your body using the momentum of your leg. Only your shoulder and upper back should touch the ground. Your waist legs should remain off the ground throughout the ‘mills’.

v. When you are able to switch smoothly from the face down, hand stomach pose to shoulder down position. The momentum of your leg should drive your body to complete the roll. It is important for follow trough the swinging of your leg. Prepare you hand to twist you body back to the hand on stomach pose.

vi. It is very important that you keep your leg straight. Once you are able to complete this, you can start trying multiple mills, as shown here ; (links to windmill video)
vii. This type of windmills is the basic of much more advance windmills variation; such as the nutcracker, barrel, baby mills and many more. For info about this advance mills, head out to, ask the pro section: (links to forum discussing other mills type).
