I can't tuck on my back tuck!

I've been doing back tucks for a while now and i'm so mad at myself. I set really high and land it but i get bad scores because i don't tuck tight enough. I don't know why, because i'm not scared of anything about the skill, and if i ticked i would have it all on my own. I don't get it. Have any of you ever had this problem, and how did you get over it?

In gymnastics the problem is rarely the actual underlying cause. It’s usually not enough to just tuck more, and there are specific technical corrections that need to be made, and once they are the skill fixes itself.

There are a huge number of reasons of a tuck not working. It would be really hard for us to give you any useful advice when we haven’t seen the tuck.
