    Back walkover on beam help!!

    I am trying to learn my back walkover on beam. I've been practicing it on a 1" high mat beam thing. I can land my feet straight on it but can't get my hands together on it. Does anyone have tips for keeping your hands together so they go on the beam?

    Front walkover front tuck

    I was just thinking how cool a FWO-FT dismont off beam would be. I've never seen before. You can't compete flight element in my level so FHS-FT is out of the question. It's bonus if you have a connected dismount. Can't do CW-BT (I can't cartwheel- I can do FWO, BWO, BHS but not a cartwheel...

    Front Walkover

    I know its not amazing to many but DD had a light-bulb moment today and has managed her front walkover. She has had a front limber for months but not the step-out, and today she just started practicing on the carpet ( much to her brothers' disgust as they were playing on the Wii) and after...

    Front Walkover Drills...?

    I'm really close to getting my front walkover. Really, REALLY close. I get up a few inches, but then I either fall back or fall forward. Does anybody know any drills or strength exercises that will help me get my front walkover? Because failing at it again and again isn't helping- at all.

    sudden back walkover fear

    Hey everyone! In the last couple of weeks I've developed a fear of doing back walkovers on high beam, for no reason at all. They've always made me a bit nervous, but I do them every practice and it hasn't been a problem until now. It seems to have started when I began training round-off back...

    I am a level 8 gymnast. I am having trouble connecting back walkover into a back handspring. I can do it on the low beam without a problem, but when I go to the high beam, I force my self to swing my arms before I do the back handspring, so it isn't a connection. I am scared to do it on the...

    Back Walkover Connection on Beam?

    So I have been having lots of trouble on my bwo connection. I can make the first one easily, but as soon as I try to go for the next one, I freeze! My coach says to just keep moving my hands back, but this doesn't seem to help. I can connect them perfectly on the floor. Any tips? :confused:

    I have a super happy girl here today and just had to share her exciting news ;) Rylee decided (today) that she would like to learn how to do a back walkover. After 3 'spots' she did it by herself (and she was yelling, "I DID IT!! I GOT IT!!!"... haha... love it when that happens)...
