I am training for Level 7 and have been swinging a full giant with a spot for over a year. I tried them on my own for the first time last week. But every time I just arch off the back side. My coach says I'm not tapping hard enough and not pulling my toes over the bar. I can cast all the way to handstand and have a good baby giant with a back hip circle connected, and I scored 9s on bars in Level 5 and 6. My giants are fine on strap bar. I've been doing the drill on trampoline where you bounce on your back and then up to handstand holding the floor bar (I hope that makes sense) but I don't feel like I'm making any progress. I just miss the giant every time. Does anyone have any ideas of drills I can do or something else I should think about? I'm 5'6 and probably won't grow much more, if that matters, but I haven't had much trouble with hitting the low bar yet. It's the only skill left I need for Level 7, I have a couple months still, but any advice is appreciated!
