Roundoff Backhandspring tutorial💕

‼️NOTE: MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A MAT👍 i didn't here but really should have! When you're starting make sure you have something soft to cushion a landing to prevent injuries‼️

So make sure you warm up , especially your back and wrists, this is very important so you don't pull a muscle👍

Make sure you can do : Backbend kickover, back limber, round off and a back handspring😄

1⃣ Practice doing a standing back limber

2⃣Practice doing a roundoff into a back limber, starting with a small pause, and rock to pull yourself over and then going straight into it! You should feel it pulling on your core- this isn't what a ROBHS feels like but it gets you used to going from a roundoff straight onto your hands👍

3⃣Something really helpful which made me get my round off backhandspring was practicing on a trampoline or a sprung floor👍 The bounce makes it easier to gain momentum and flips you over doing most of the work! So practice doing a roundoff, pause and without swinging ,jump into a back handspring! This might take a while but you can get a spotter to support you👍

4⃣ Do this faster with less pauses until it all connects together👍

5⃣ Keep practicing on the trampoline/sprung floor until you feel completely comfortable and then move to floor- there it's the same process but the ground will be harder obviously and with no spring!! Because of this you'll need to push off your shoulders more- exercises to help this is doing handstand pushups against a wall and handstand hops👍

Keep practicing and you'll get there😃 Good luck xxx

(Sorry for the bad form in this- i don't know what happened to my standing flicks that day but oh well😂👍)

PARTNER CARTWHEEL THING
-
Basically just make sure the standing person has a big enough stance so the the cartwheel person can grip their thighs -
And that the standing person holds the cartwheel person on the hips to help them over -

Main thing is just to go for it👍👍

How to do a Valdez:
-
1⃣First, having a good back walkover will help but is not necessary.
2⃣But having a bridge kick over is essential
3⃣First have both legs out in front if you, then with the second leg (to kick over) bend so your knee is in the air
4⃣Next have that hand by your side and the other arm over your straight leg.
5⃣Next you are going to want to practice going from that position into a bridge, this may take some practice but will become smoother over time. Remember to bring the arm that is straight out over your head and twist your other hand 180* as you go up.
6⃣After that you should practice going up into a bridge, pause, and then kick over.
7⃣Gradually make this faster and faster and as smooth as possible
8⃣It's also really helpful to have someone who can pull your leg up and over so making the skill easier👍

MORE TIPS FOR A BACKHANDSPRING⚓️
-
When you first get your bhs, don't expect it to be perfect.
It takes time to be confident and to get a good form in your bhs.
I found practice was the best way to build up confidence and to help my form I did a lot of back strengthening exercises, it is especially important if you have a flexible back; as it will be easier to undercut and perform a bad bhs. To help straighten your legs I recommend as you jump backwards to think about pointing your toes and be as powerful as you can in your bhs. I don't why I found this helped but my legs started to get straighter after practicing this.

Hopefully more posts soon💕

One Handed Walkover Tutorial☝️💕
-
-
1⃣- First of all make sure you stretch properly! I didn't include this in the video as thought it's pretty self explanatory , but if you need any help on what stretches to do , feel free to DM us or comment below. -
-
2⃣- For this you need a front walkover! A handstand is optional as is one handed cartwheel, however it can help you get used to only using one hand!👍 -
-
3⃣-Before anything you should know which leg you walkover on. For me this is my left leg! For the one handed walkover you should use the opposite hand to leg. So i use my left leg and right hand to put down! This will be opposite if you're a Righty! (Some people do these with the same hand to leg, and they still work but i find this way looks smoother)
-
-
4⃣-Practice going into the front walkover and just slightly lift off the pressure off your palms. Keep doing until you feel comfortable with most pressure on your other hand!!
-
-
5⃣-(OPTIONAL) Use a yoga block or something higher than the ground (Book?) and put your same arm to leg on the block. This will be the arm that you won't put down in the completed 1-handed walkover. Practice doing your walkover over it, putting weight on the hand on the floor! This will again get you used to putting all weight on that hand whilst the other arm is bent from being on a raised surface!
-
-
6⃣- Practice dive walkovers and fast walkovers! I found that the faster you go in your walkover, the easier it is to go one handed!!!! Then practice the same trick before with only one hand!!! The other arm should circle forwards (like a warm up stretch), whilst the other is supporting you on the ground!
Keep going and eventually you'll get it!!! It's easier than it looks👍 ~Livi (Sorry for the confusing tutorial😂 I didn't realise how hard it was to explain!!)

How to do a front aerial (ON TRAMPOLINE)

1⃣ make sure you are warmed up, and stretched; especially your back and splits. For this skill you do need good back and split flexibility and strength in your legs. -
2⃣ before you attempt this you should have a pretty solid front walkover, and practice doing front walkovers as quickly as you can.
-
3⃣ it could also help if you can do a front handspring and/or flyspring.
-
4⃣ practice a front walkover, but jump into it and concentrate on pushing off and flinging your back leg up as hard as you can.
-
5⃣ as you jump into the front aerial swing your arms down hard and quickly to help gain momentum.
-
6⃣ remember to arch your back when going into this skill, keep it arched until you become upright again. You can also try looking at the ground for as long as you can while flipping over to help your body do this. -
7⃣ this skill is hard, and although easier on a trampoline than the ground can still take a long time to get.
-
8⃣ making sure you get enough height is very important, practice the hurdle into it without actually going over.
-
9⃣another helpful tip is as your legs are coming over imagine them hitting you head, 😂 this will help you snap them down and increase the speed that you go over as it's important to be fast!
-
Hope you all had a good new year!🌏🎉

How to hold a longer handstand! 🐳
-
1⃣ One of the main things about holding your handstand longer is most definitely practice. It's boring yes and annoying when you only stay up for one second but it's worth it! It just gets you so much more comfortable and steady, and honestly practicing everyday will give you a noticeable difference!
-
2⃣ Your upper body strength is another thing that will affect your handstands; once again practicing will really help you improve and so will doing these next exercises. -
3⃣ First drill: holding your handstand against a wall for as long as possible. Then starting further and further away and walking yourself closer.
-
4⃣ Second drill: doing handstand push-ups; first against a wall or with another person holding your legs, then by yourself.
-
5⃣ Third drill: against a wall, taking it in turn to lift each hand off the ground we for as long as possible. -
6⃣ Fourth drill: finding an open space and just doing random shapes in your handstand!😂 Its fun but also will help you find the easiest way for you personally to keep your balance, I find a split the easiest to balance.
-
7⃣ Fifth drill: with your hands straddling a line, walk along it and try to keep straight, this is a great way to help you concentrate on balance!

Hope this helped!😊 Any question comment below!
