I need tips on how to fix a bad habit I have on my front tucks. I don’t set up at all in them and just kind of dive into them. I’ve done a few good ones every now and then but I keep on going back into that bad habit. So if anybody has any tips to help me they would be much appreciated!
Did ChalkBucket help you?... help us too.

If you can't help financially... tell a friend about us!

Video would be helpful, but here are a few things that are generally likely to help:

1) Straight jump, straight jump, front tuck on tumbletrak. By eliminating the forward momentum from a run, this reinforces a good vertical set
2) Big, high, floaty, slow 3/4 fronts on trampoline. Watch the landing as long as possible. Again, this is to reinforce a vertical set, and get you used to focusing on height rather than rushing rotation.
3) Lower body and core strength. For a punch front, it's as much about power as technique.
