Fuc*!%^ Crankflips!

I've been trying crankflips for 3 weeks now for about 30 minutes to an hour each day and I still can'y get my damn cranks to rotate at all. My chain is so loose it's about to fall off and my cranks are greased like crazy and the bolts on my crank are loose as he11. My pedals have 4 super long pins per side that have super good grip. Why arn't my cranks rotating????

I can't get them to turn at all. I guess I don't know how to flip it with my feet then, because there not moving at all.

try rotating the pedals backward really fast, and kicking them with one feet first, when ur more confortable, do both. also try first with out rotating them and landing them - just jump up and land on ur pedals (not bunny hop)
