I didn't.  Charlie hangs upside down and so I watched him and as he was about to do it, I said "Gonna getcha.....bang!" and he fell, I treated him.  So...in the end he waited until I said it and then fell, so he would get his treat.  Training is all about watching your birds moves and trying to work with it.  When he was getting back up I'd say to him "Sit up!" now if he's hanging upside down and I say "Sit up!" he does it.  Study your bird, see what he does and use whatever actions to teach him a "trick"
