    For Parents Double Leg Kickover???

    While working on floor tonght, DD's (age 6, pre-team) coach had the girls do a backbend, then, instead of kicking over one leg at a time they used their core to pull both legs up and over at the same time (looks like it should be physically impossible to me :)). I was pretty impressed when DD...

    WAG Double Back!!

    So proud of my 12 year old - she landed her double back PIKE for the first time without the coach on the floor! Such a thrill for me, but her response, "It's no big deal mom, I've been ready for awhile. We were just being safe until now!" Big skill for a little girl - can't wait to see the...

    WAG Double back! (on the tramp)

    DD did her first double backs over the weekend on the tramp. It probably took 10 minutes of the coach telling her to do it before she got over the excitement/nerves/etc and tried it. Still has to move to the tumble track and eventually the floor, but it was fun to watch. She spent the rest of...

    WAG Double tuck help?

    My double pikes are perfect, nice and high and great form. My double tuck, not so much. Ugh I can't figure out why... Everyone I know is the other way around. My double tuck travels too much and I either land short or fly backwards... By am I doing this?? Can someone help?

    Need Help With Double Twist

    I've been doing full and a halves for almost a year now, and they're fine. Decently high, the twist is fast, etc. But whenever I try a double, all I do is a bad 1 1/2. I have a lot of momentum going backwards(I always have to roll out of it, which never happens on my 1 1/2's), and the twist...

    Overrotating on double backs?

    HI! Before you start asking, this thread shows a video about acro, which is like the definition of gymnastics in my country, but applies to every gymnastics discipline that uses double backs. Double back tucks are very common in acro, artistic, tumbling and trampoline, and I've seen a lot of...

    Is a double twisted yurchenko vault the same

    as an Amanar? And Amanar is the person it is named after? Stupid question probably, but it's not like it will be my first (or last!) on this forum and elsewhere, lol.

    Double flipping pass

    What are the possible options for double flipping pass at level 8? My dd has done to whip back tuck but she will no longer do those. This year it is double punch front which she has been barely making second one. She has also done punch front ro back handspring back tuck.

    8 year old dd did a double back tuck yesterday!!!

    Oh, on the trampoline in the bungee harness, lol! Thought that would get you all upset and ready to chew me out. :) They had about an hour of playtime yesterday afternoon after some pretty hard conditioning. They were "peter pan" flying and having a ton of fun.

    Which is harder,full twisting double layout or double twisting double tuck?

    I know both are G elements but is one harder than the other? In the 2008 olympics I saw a few double twisting double tucks but no full twisting double layouts.

    Double Popping on FHS Vault

    I have a gymnast who is double popping on vault. She had a great HS flat back last year. We have a prota-vault that goes into our pit and she doesn't do it on there. Once she gets to the table it's like she double pops and she almost get stuck in her HS. Any tips or advice on this situation I've...
