Im not sure how to do this, every time I do one it turns out in a side spin thing. I tried to wait longer before spinning, but I just fall on my head.
I tend to think of it not so much as an issue of timing, but of direction. Afterall, watch any elite gymnast doing a twisting skill in slow-mo, and you'll almost always find that their shoulders and chest have noticably started twisting before their feet leave the floor.Yeah, it sounds like you are just twisting right off the floor. One of the girls that I coach tends to do that all of the time. If you have a pit, try doing really late twists. That should help!
Agreed -- sort of.there is no such thing as an early twist! I've had quite a few coaches come up to me in the past and ask how to fix an early twist and my response is...there is no such thing! What you're having is a shape problem and lack of tightness when twisting early has a negative result on the skill being attempted
