    WAG Front walkover on beam?

    Recently I have been trying to learn a front walkover on the beam! I can do them really well on the floor but when I get onto the beam I'm too scared because you can't see where you feet are going when you come over the top! I'm scared that my foot will slip off or miss the beam! How do I get...

    WAG Is there any skill that can replace back walkover on beam lvl 6

    Ok...without going into detail on why my level 6 gymnast cant do a back walkover or a back handspring on beam (this would be like writing a short novel)...is there anything else that can replace those? Can she do say a round off or front walkover? What if she did a skill to replace the back...

    WAG Back walkover on beam

    My daughter is having issues with this skill. She actually said she hated it. She has started practicing her BHS on beam and says this is easier. She is still on the floor doing the BHS on a foam beam. She says the BWO hurts her back. Is she perhaps doing it wrong or is she just not...

    WAG Back walkover back handspring on beam

    I've been having some issues with BWO BHS on beam- more mental than anything else! Are there any drills I can do at home to make myself more comfortable? I have a foldable floor beam "line" I can use. Thanks! EDIT: coaches, do you prefer your gymnasts to do BWO BHS two foot or BWO BHS stepout...

    How long will it take to get a back walkover?

    I need it by August for the next level. I don't have a backbend kickover because my back and shoulders are stiff. Is it possible to gain back and shoulder flexibility and get a backbend kickover by then? That is the one skill that will move me forward. I am prepared to work hard enough to get it...

    WAG Standing splits and walkover drills?

    Hi! I have good front splits (oversplits of about 4-5 inches) and also my middle split as well as great shoulder and back flexibility. I was wondering what you need to be able to hold your leg up when you are in a bridge and going to do a walkover. Or if you do a scale and hold your leg up in...

    WAG More common- Back Walkover/Back Walkover or Back Walkover/BHS?

    Which tends to be the more common series for level 6 or 7, the back walkover/back walkover with BHS separate or the back walkover/back handspring series with no extra bhs? DD already has the BWO/BWO and separate BHS and is connecting the BWO/BSH on the floor beam. Just wondering when each...

    Front Walkover beam help.

    Okay so when I was a level five (now four) I had my front walkover on high beam no problem, I stuck them every time. We took a little break from front walkovers and now I cant do them even on the low beam. I get to a split handstand and just turn of. Any tips? P.S I have my front walkover on...

    WAG "I need to get my back walkover on beam!"

    My little one brought her little foam roll-up beam out of the closet last night at 10:00. I said, "Sweetie, why are you getting that out right now?" She replied, "I need to get my back walkover on beam!" I said, "Why? You don't need that skill for this next level." She gave me the look and...

    WAG Front walkover question

    DD has been trying to get her front walkover for awhile now and is having a problem with the landing. 99.9% of the time, she lands on her toes and her leg gives beneath her, and she ends up on her back. What's the issue? Thanks!
