    Bridge kickover

    DD is 4 (will be 5 next month) and has been doing a bridge kickover on the floor for several weeks now. She does them on her own, and doesn't appear to have any trouble doing them, but several times after she has finished the move, she has looked at me and said it hurt her shoulders. She...

    bridge / wrist pain?

    I noticed the other night at dd's practice that she was grabbing /shaking out her wrists after holding herself up in a bridge. Is this normal or is she doing something wrong? Just curious. I don't think she's strong enough yet as she has a hard time holding them for extended periods but...

    bridge up to kickover-level 3

    El is having trouble with this skill. I have read lots of different things on here about this. Here is what she can do: great straight handstands-no arch and has pointed toes, cartwheels, round offs, spotted back handsprings, all of the level 3 bars routine-level 1 and 2 also. She is very strong...

    help with my bridge walkover

    I can kick over from a bridge if I do it with my feet up on a mat, but if I try to do it from the floor, from the same level my hands are at...well, it just doesn't happen. I don't know if I don't have the strength or what, but I simply can't kick over. Help?

    How to improve shoulder flexibility for bridge?

    My flexibility has never been good, especially back and shoulders. I can get up into a basic bridge okay with straight arms (just). I'm a long way from getting my legs straight or together. I know for bridge you're supposed to use more shoulder and upper back flexibility so there's less...

    Level 4 handstand to bridge

    Hello, I'm a level 4 gymnast and I have a question about the handstand bridge in the floor routine. I started to learn the level 4 routines after state last year and have been following videos. My coach is now telling me that in my handstand bridge that it is just a tap with your feet then...

    Bridge Kickover

    It seems that I can't get a bridge kickover to save my life. I can do straight leg bridges and normal well, so shoulder flexibility doesn't seem to be the issue. One thing that irks me about it, other than the fact that I can't get even 45 degrees off the ground, is that I do them with my bad...

    Parents DD got her bridge kickover

    'Bout time. She stalled on this one for a long time. Then they taught the level 2 floor routine yesterday. She asked me, "Will I be allowed to go to the meets (starting in 8 weeks) if I don't have my kickover?" I purposefully say I am pretty sure not.:liar: So she went at it today and got...

    Coaches Bridge kickover issues...

    We need some pointers for getting this skill, on a consistant basis. My DD can get over occasionally, but most of the time, stalls out right before she goes over, then falls flat on her back or back to a bridge. Is it more about ab strength, flexability, or what. She is fine with just the...
