    For Coaches Back walkover advice

    Hi all, Could you guys let me know what you think of my daughter's back walkover please? She has recently learned this skill so we are still working on straightening that second leg - any tips on how to do that would be much appreciated. She's currently in recreational and in her age group...

    WAG crooked back walkover

    Okay, so I had problems with back walkovers on beam for a while. My right leg leads my kick over. I would always put my left hand in front of my right hand instead of in a butterfly position. I almost never got them together in the butterfly position, and when I did, it was crooked, again with...

    WAG Stretches for back walkover

    So I am working on my back walkover, and I was wondering if anyone has good stretches you recommend for your back? I have heard from friends and the internet that bridges can be really bad for you, plus they make my lower back really sore, so I’m trying to not just do those. Also, (sorry for 2...

    WAG Back walkover on beam

    I have all skills for level 5 on beam except for back walkover. I know I can do it because I've done it exactly how you would on a beam except on a line. Everytime I go on the beam I get scared and don't go. Any ideas how I could get over this fear so that I can move up?

    WAG Back walkover: non-kicking leg going out to the side???

    Good news is we finally fixed the shoulder flexibility and opening up issue for my daughter's back walkover- yay! Now though when she kicks back her non-kicking leg is going out to the side making her go off course and twist and fall over to that side. What is she doing wrong? We don't have...

    WAG front walkover help (back flexibility inbalance?)

    I have been trying to work on improving some of my skills & focusing more on technique. As I was watching videos of myself doing things like front walkovers and kick-overs, I've noticed that when I kick up with my good leg (right) and land on the ground with only my bad leg (left), my left leg...

    WAG back walkover on beam

    My daughter is working on her back walkover on beam to train up for next season but she is scared of going backwards. Its a fair fear but she is nearly entirely doing it on her own, with a very very light spot and Im looking for ways to get over the fear. Any ideas?

    I’m an ex-gymnast trying to get some of my basic skills back for cheer tryouts in about 4 months. I’m still decently flexible.When I quit, I had just gotten my front and back walkover.

    I need help with front walkover

    I have been working on my front walkover for a couple weeks now but I keep having the same issues. My arms are straight for the first part but when my legs move over my head they bend and than my back gives out. Any advice for fixing this issue or making it easier to do?

    How to straighten legs in back walkover?

    So I just got my backwalkover :) so happy! But one thing I want to work on is straightening my legs in it so if you have any tips so I can still complete the kickover part without losing the power with straight legs I’d be grateful thank you!

    Did you get your front or back walkover first?

    Just curious, I already have my front walkover but not my back walkover. Many people seem to find back walkovers easier than front walkovers and I’m not too sure why if you can do both, which did you find easier and why? :)

    For Coaches Back walkover fear

    Wellllll, I think I have read everything about fears and vestibular issues and how to get over them. I think this is the hardest part in coaching gymnastics, trying to stay calm and act like it's not a big deal and it's going to get fixed and it's not the end of the world. It's just so hard to...

    WAG Crooked back walkover on beam

    DD has had an issue for the past few months where she tends to go crooked on the bwo on the high beam and fall off the side of the beam. And not just barely missing her feet, but more like going at a 45 degree angle or more off the beam. She had it fine for a few months before this started...

    WAG Front Walkover Help?

    I have a front handspring step-out, a front handspring, and a back walkover. However, no matter how hard I try, I cannot get the hang of the front walkover. It feels like I'm not getting enough push from my wrists to actually get up. Is there any drills I can do at home to get it? Thanks for...

    One handed front walkover

    I saw something in another thread about left and right handedness in gym and I am right handed but I do front walkovers lunging forward with my left leg. To perform a one handed walkover , which hand should be the one to go down as my right arm is stronger but I am not sure if that's right ? Any...
