I've started doing some coaching recently and 1 of the girls in my group is struggling with her round offs. She has the right shape for a round off but she just doesn't push off the floor and lift her chest at the end. She gets into the handstand part and then just flops down with no block off the floor. We have been doing some drills to try and help with the block but nothing seems to work for her. We have tried: handstand hops, donkey kicks, round offs off a springboard and off a bench, round offs on an air floor and even shouting 'push' so shes knows when to block. Does anyone have anymore drills we could try? She is a recreational gymnast aged about 11 so she can do more complex drills. Any help would be much appreciated!
