    My DD Delighted To Have A New Skill And It Isn't Even A Back Walkover On The Beam:)

    After some of the posts today about fast tracking kids, I wanted to tell everyone that gymnasts really do get true joy out of the simple accomplishments and for me that is worth it. My 5 year old dd got her cartwheel on the beam and she was so proud of herself she just kept doing it. Yeah!

    Back Walkover, Back Handspring Connection

    Has anyone seen a video of this online? It seems there is a huge deduction for not connecting this on beam. I heard you can't swing your arms either. Would love to see this done perfectly.

    Back Walkover Tips

    My poor daughter is trying so hard to get it and is nowhere close. We have a wedge and she can do a bridge kickover. As well she has her back bend onto the wedge. But she cant do a back walkover. Any ideas of things she can do at home to work on it that will help her get there?
