I've got a gymnast who do the half twist backwards & still he can not do the full twist! Turning speed is bit slow! Please someone suggest me some working drills for him!

And please explain the spotting also!

We don't have tumble track or tramp!

Thanks & Nice Day!:)

Keep doing the 1/2's, but make sure its a late 1/2. When they can do that, have them land the 1/2, then do a jump 1/2 turn. When they are comfortable w/ that, have them do the full. If things get crazy, go back to the 1/2's. Patience is the key when teaching twisting... no spotting necesary.. do you hae apit or resi pit landing.
