So when I do backbends/backwalkovers it’s not exactly pain, but it’s more uncomfortable than I remember it being. When I was younger, like 9 or 10 it was WAY easier to do back walkovers and now I get scared my back will snap even though I am decently flexible, and I can walk my hands up to my feet in a bridge. Is it this normal? Should I just deal with it or is there some other way to do a BWO? Or is it age-related? I’m 13 right now, and have been doing gymnastics consistently since summer last year (when I was 8-10 I was self taught and then I quit).
