How to Do Pop & Lock Arm Moves

Learn how to do pop and lock arm moves in this street dance video from Howcast.


This is your boy Jino yet again, and I'm going to teach you how to do some arm pops. Arm pops are fairly simple but they can get very, rigorous and technical. It can get from popping one part, from your whole arm, to getting just this part of your arm. That takes lots of practice but just getting the whole are to pop is not too hard. Only practicing makes you hit even harder.

Let's start with simple pops. You have arm pops so when you do it, you're going to use this muscle. Like you're flexing your stuff or whatever on Instagram and all that other stuff. So, what you're going to do, put your arms up like this, and I'm pretty sure you've seen this if you took a class.

You're going to go 1, 2, 3, 4. Like you're flexing your muscles. If you want to you can start by closing your fist at first. So you're going, watch carefully, 1, 2, 3, 4.

Now what you can do, you can make rotations in different positions. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, 6, 7, 8. Now make sure you do not use your shoulders. Popping, you cannot use your shoulders. That's flexing, [wreckup].

Now, popping, you're not using shoulders. You're using just your muscles. You can also use your wrists as well. Watch carefully. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.

Now, I'm going to show you a quick simple routine with arm pops. You're first move is going to be 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, put your left foot in, 7, out. Where you started from. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.

Let's try that again. One more time. 5, 6, 7, 8. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.

Now, let's try it with some music.
