    Anon Round off Tuck- STG

    One of my friends helping me with round off says, its like 3 steps, 1) first going into a cartwheel phase 2) in the middle, you go into the "Handstand" 3) finally, snap your feet down into a hollow Is the middle step correct? Do you enter a true handstand in the round off?

    WAG Round Off - Landing into Hollow Body position

    What starts the Hollow body position during landing in the Round Off? My coach told me to "snap your toes down"? Is that true? (a) Do I snap my toes down, and let the legs initiate the hollow position? (b) or does it come from back muscles? (c) Last she said sometimes, it easier to get into a...

    WAG Round off, hollow body position?

    This sort of touches on my last question. I am trying to work on the round off. During the gymnastics round off, (a) should a person get into a "hollow body position", which includes sucking in/squeezing the abs and squeezing the glutes? (b) if so, when should an athlete start the hollow body...

    WAG Round Off, Should I flick the wrist?

    During the gymnastics round off, should a person "flick the wrist" like they are kind of doing a basketball shot? This is also done with the "shoulder shrug pop" to get a lift from the ground. One of my coaches told me to flick wrist, just curious if this is standard practice? Everyone has...

    WAG Help connecting round off to a bhs

    Hi guys! Currently I am working on my round off back handspring. It has been a few years since I’ve practiced, yet I am still having the same issue. My round off is powerful, but when it comes to connecting it to a back handspring it goes down hill. My coach is telling me that I need to feel...

    For Coaches Yurchenko round off mat recommendation

    Hello. Our gym does not have a mat for Optionals to practice Yurchenko entry drills. They have an old panel mat to use for the round off. I am wondering what round off mat you would recommend. I have found Norberts, Gymnova (quote only, I can't tell the price) Mancino mats, and one at Ten-O. Is...

    round off handspring tuck

    Hello, I am a 17-year-old boy. I dance and am doing a proud off handspring tuck in my show. I did gymnastics when I was young and cheer more recently. I used to be able to do this, but I always had trouble with undercutting my springs and looking back on tucks. Any help would be appreciated. Video

    WAG Round off handspring tuck

    Hi everyone. I can do a round off backhand spring back tuck, but I always have an archy one. I know it’s because I am afraid that I won’t make it over... although when I do a round of handspring set it is high enough. I am pretty tall for a gymnast though. Also, I am floppy. I try to tighten...

    WAG Is there a wrong way to learn a round off?

    My daughter has a new coach now and I notice the way she is telling her to jump into the round off is different, along with other random differences in technique with some of the other skills. Im zeroing in on the round off because it was so obvious to me but is this just like a personal...

    For Parents Has anyone's dd done cartwheel/round off L7 beam instead of BHS?

    My dd, age 12, is having a huge mental block on BHS on high beam. It's ridiculous. So bad that the coach is thinking of having her compete 6 until this issue resolves. Her coach wants BHS on beam, states the judges don't like round off's instead of BHS. She has all her other level 7 skills, a...
