Power moves

Power moves are some of the flashiest and most impressive elements of breakdance. They are often the centerpieces of routines featuring many other breakdance moves. However, most b-boys dislike those who use only power moves (called power heads).

The three most widely recognized power moves are the swipe, windmill, and flare. Other less well-known but equally challenging and impressive moves include Halos and Air Tracks, and some breakers place 1990s and their sister 2000s in the category of power moves. All of the above can be modified in subtle ways to add interest and display individual style.

These breaks often require incredible upper-body strength, proprioception, and flexibility to complete. They rely heavily on momentum, often achieved by swinging the legs and twisting the torso in a circular motion. The arms, especially the triceps and shoulders, usually bear the body's weight in uncommon positions while the abdominals and lower back muscles must whip the legs around as needed. The pectorals and muscles of the upper back are also taxed.
