    WAG Front Tuck Flip, how to envision hips and glutes

    I am working on the front tuck flip at gymnastics training center. How should I envision what I do with my glutes during the flip? Should I "think about lifting my glutes over my head" or lifting it over the shoulder? How do you train your students?

    Front tuck help

    I need tips on how to fix a bad habit I have on my front tucks. I don’t set up at all in them and just kind of dive into them. I’ve done a few good ones every now and then but I keep on going back into that bad habit. So if anybody has any tips to help me they would be much appreciated!
