Hi!

I did my very first back tuck yesterday on the 2nd and I didn't land it.. I think it's because I didn't let go of my legs quick enough. So when should I let go of my legs to land? Should I count to three or something while I am in the air? Any advice is completely appreciated! Thanks!

I have figured out my problem: on both the back and front tuck I am not letting go of my legs before I land. So inevitable I fall on my face of something to that effect. Should I have the coach tell me when to let go or what?

yes, calling you out on the landing can be useful.
