When I was young I could not do a back walkover on beam for anything no matter how hard I tried to stay "square." I could easily do it on the floor. I have a significant curvature of the spine in my lower back area. I am wondering if this possibly affected my ability to do skills like this. Does anybody know?

I have a small curvature in my spine too and it made back walkovers on beam painful. I personally feel like when doing back walkovers on beam you have to have more back flexibility and you can't be crooked. these can cause the skill to be harder on beam than floor.
