Hello, this is Gino Fort yet again. Came to introduce you to krumping arm swings.

Krumping arm swings are very strong, and they make you very tired by the end of the song. Of all the techniques in krump that make you tired is arm swings, 'cause it involves a lot of power. And you have to stick it. Now, back in the day when rise, tie-dyes, krump days, there was a lot of clowning and monkey days and other stuff and all this, but it's a lot more controlled these days.

There's a difference. A lot of people think that that's what krump is now. It's not. It's a lot more controlled, it's on point, and it's changed. It's very different now, 'cause tie-dyes brought a new thing to it. Well, he switched the style up anyway. So, when you bring arm swings to the table, it's very dynamic.

Like, it's the stronger you are the more powerful you are, the more control you have, the better it will look. If you're very loose and don't have that much muscle, it's not going to come out as neat. So, working out, going to the gym does help you.
