    BACK WALKOVERS :)

    Hi everyone! I have a few questions about back walkovers. I can do the splits, a front walkover, and a backbend kickover. When I go into my back walkover, I can do the first part where I do a backbend on one foot but then I can't kick over from there immediately when my foot hits, but when I...

    Should I quit?

    I’ve been going to cheer tumble classes for an hour a week for about 3.5 months. Additionally, I’ve been going to privates for 30 minutes on sundays about 2 weeks ago. I’m still working on kickovers, and I keep losing them. Is this normal?

    Is this normal? (Kickover)

    I’ve been doing cheer tumble classes for about 3.5 months every Saturday for an hour, recently with an additional private lesson for 30 minutes on Sundays. I’m working on kickovers, and I still need a spot before I do one, and I can’t do it on command. Is this normal? By the way, it’s a bridge...

    Front Walkovers

    I'm a baton twirler for my high school (I perform as the feature twirler of my school's marching band during halftime shows at football games). Next year I hope to do basic tumbling/gymnastics on the turf during the performances. I can do really easy, basic tricks like cartwheels, front...

    Fear of tumbling on the air track

    Hi, at my gym we don't have a foam pit or a spring floor, but we have a long inflatable air track for our tumbling. I can do a solid round off back tuck and layout on the floor (regular ground with matting, not spring floor) but when I bring it on the air track, it becomes terrible because I'm...

    Help!!! Backhandspring step outs

    Please help! I have a very hard time doing backhandspring step outs. I jump pretty hard(although I am not the most powerful). I have been told that my legs bend at first (I guess to separate faster?). I can kind of feel it, but don't know how to fix it. No matter how hard I try to split my legs...

    Front Handsprings

    I am not the best at front tumbling. I have a particularly hard time landing front handsprings with straight legs and not in a squat. I have tried to work them on tumble trak, and they were good. I did them out of one step and a very large hurdle, so that is a little different from on floor...

    Back Tucks out of Tumbling

    I am having trouble doing back tucks out of tumbling(on tumble trak). I am mainly doing them out of round offs and I tend to kind of whip. I can do a standing back tuck off of the end of the tumble trak onto a mat of the same hight(no drop) with near perfect form, but a little more hight would...

    Beginner skill questions?

    Hi everyone! I'm an acro dancer, so I am incorporating tumbling skills into different dance styles (I'm a boy btw). I have several questions (I'm a COMPLETE beginner!): 1. For cartwheels, do you guys have any tips? I can't really seem to kick over my head. 2. For handstands, I always kick too...
