The Outside Loops Yo-Yo Trick is a variation on the Loop the Loop Yo-Yo Trick. Now that you've gone inside with Loop the Loop, it's time to take a trip to the outside with Outside Loops.

How to Do the Outside Loops Yo-Yo Trick:

Step 1: Begin by throwing a Forward Pass.

Step 2: As the yo-yo returns, let it pass over the top of your yo-yo hand. The palm of your hand should be facing inward. Allow the yo-yo to circle your hand on the outside of the wrist.

Step 3: As it passes your hand on the outside of your arm, swing the yo-yo forward again with another flick of your wrist. Keep your hand low. If you lift it high, it will be hard to catch the yo-yo.
