I’m an ex-gymnast trying to get some of my basic skills back for cheer tryouts in about 4 months. I’m still decently flexible.When I quit, I had just gotten my front and back walkover. Anyways, I’m struggling with my front walkover. I just can’t seem to stand up without putting both of my feet down. I have the first half down, but to stand up I almost always spread my legs out a bit to make it easier to stand up. Any ideas for stretches and at home drills that can help me get these skills back? Thanks!

Do a front limber and try to put the other foot up and while rocking back and forth use your strength to push and balance on that foot.

A video would help us to know what is going on.

Make sure you get your first foot to land under your hips, if it is too far forward it won’t be under your centre of gravity and you will fall back. Also make sure it is nice and straight when you land. Also make sure you are pushing your hips forward.
