🎉More walkovers to/ from the floor!🎉
4️⃣Valdez. Start on the floor with your walkover leg extended & supporting leg planted. Have the same arm as the working leg extended out & the other hand right behind you, fingers facing away. Reach the extended arm straight up & over, as you look back for the floor. Push up with the supporting leg & twist the supporting hand into proper bridge position. Keep lifting that working leg, as the 1st hand touches the ground & you push off with the bottom foot. From here, finish as if a normal back walkover. *Add more spice: If you can do your valdez already, why not try a one handed? AND if you can do the one handed already, why not try it in a ‘leg hold’ position?? 5️⃣Snap up. Start on your knees, sitting up off your feet. Swing the arms, sit back & prepare as if going into a back handspring. Pull the arms up & over the head (keeping them straight!) while looking back for the floor, and pushing off your knees. Squeeze the glutes & push your hips up, as you engage your quads to think about straightening the legs. Bring the hands down to the floor to land in a bridge over the toes. If that was challenge enough for now, stop there & keep practicing. Otherwise, as soon as your hands touch in your bridge, start to lift the working leg & kick over into your BWO from the tops of your toes.
6️⃣Fishflop. Start back walkover as normal. Stop the 1st foot in the handstand & bring the 2nd one up to meet it. From here, keep lifting/pulling away from the ground, as you lift your chin & slowly bend the arms lowering down to your chest. Arch your back & finish rolling out to a cobra position.
7️⃣Kadoozi. For this variation you have to start a bit differently. You are going to start with your dominant foot in front (pointed or in a lunge); put your hands down sideways (as if doing a cartwheel), HOWEVER they are going to be facing AWAY from the front leg. Place the hands down one at a time as you kick the back foot. Keeping the legs in a split position, arch your back to bring them to the floor. Lift the 1st hand off the floor, catch yourself on the bottom of the 1st foot & lower yourself to your bum keeping the 2nd leg extended.
