I have had fear issues with backhandsprings when I was younger. I have recently just started doing gym again as an adult. I seem to be able to standing backhandspring fine, and I can round off backhandspring into the pit with level mats fine. But as soon as I take the mat away I pull out as I have nothing to spot. Just wondering where people normally look when doing these?
If you are referring to "looking for something" I don't. I typically end up closing my eyes. However, I think following your hands might work.
Yes, follow your hands, spot the floor, but DO NOT throw your head back. :p
