    MAG different routines

    Sooo, I hope I don't get any type of hate for posting this but... I feel like there's this general idea that men can't be artistic or graceful, that's pretty obvious given the fact that there's no music or dance in FX for MAG. What I want to know is if there is any male gymnast that actually...

    Round off back tucks and layouts... going backwards

    So, long story short, I started practicing round off back tucks, my coach said it doesn't look like a back tuck at all, so i should start doing pikes, I can't pull up my pikes, so they end up being layouts. :D So, now I'm training back layouts, but whatever the position is, I can't seem to get...

    Is this routine permitted (legal)? Does it meet the requirements?

    HI! As you may know, I do acro, but I would love to do artistic someday, but given my actual discipline, I would only be able to do floor, IMO (maybe parallels and vault, if I practice a lot). As you also should know, acro is much more artistic than MAG, so I don't have that powerful tumbling...
