    Bridge Kickover Help

    I am in recreational gymnastics and I started in the level 2 program. We had to have our bridge kickover to move. I had mine, but it wasn't consistent. I moved up to level three and I was able to fake it whenever I couldn't do my kickover. Now I'm moving up to level 4 and I can't do that anymore...

    Is this normal? (Kickover)

    I’ve been doing cheer tumble classes for about 3.5 months every Saturday for an hour, recently with an additional private lesson for 30 minutes on Sundays. I’m working on kickovers, and I still need a spot before I do one, and I can’t do it on command. Is this normal? By the way, it’s a bridge...

    For Parents Bridge kickover to bhs

    So, Beans coach came back from congress with new drills for bwo but has decided to let her compete bridge kickover to bhs. I am assuming the hope is to get her over whatever issue she is having. Thoughts? In my mind, I see the deductions adding up but most likely less than a fall [emoji1] anyone...

    Backbend kickover

    I need a backbend kickover ASAP. I was supposed to have it before we started competing a year ago. But I had every other skill so I put it off. My back isn't very flexible but I can do a backbend now. My shoulders aren't flexible and that's the problem. I can do a kickover off of the lowest...

    I can get my kickover on a wedge mat and a 6 inch step up block. When I move to the floor, I can only kick up to like 70 degrees. My shoulders are past my hands.

    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...
