    WAG Tips to not throw back head in back tuck

    At practice I keep throwing my head back in my back tuck. I want to stop throwing my head back so I can start working on my back handspring back tuck. If anyone has some tips for throwing your head back I would love to see them in the replies.

    Back handspring and back tuck progressions

    I have seen that it is usually recommended to learn a back handspring before a back tuck. What are the reasons and do they still apply to adults?

    WAG Lost Skill :( Standing back tuck

    I’m really sad because I lost my standing back tuck. I did it for the first time in March (so two months ago).
