    Hello, I hope someone can help me with my back walkover. I have no problem with falling into a bridge on one foot and doing a kickover on a flat floor, but I cannot do a back walkover. I lose momentum when I fall into a bridge on one foot, and I have to pause to regain the momentum for the...

    WAG Back walkover series

    Hi I was practicing switch leg back walkover swing through cartwheels for fun because my coach told us to try to connect skills. Should I do this or should I practice handstand back walkovers or double back walkovers. I will eventually need to to a back handsprings series, so what should I be...

    WAG Do you actually need a back walkover to learn a bhs?

    Just a question for Chalkbucket coaches: I'm highly inflexible, and I learned my bhs being able to do a bridge and a terrible backbend. My coach said it was fine to learn handsprings without walkovers, and the most important thing to have learned before a bhs is a strong shoulder block and...

    WAG Is there a reason to do HS BHS vs BWO BHS?

    Just out of curiosity! At one of our gym locations everyone is training BWO BHS for series, at another they’re all training HS BHS. Mine will do either HS BHS or BHS BHS, she doesn’t do BWO so literally just curious on gym philosophies? Is there a reason why some coaches would choose one series...

    WAG crooked back walkover

    Okay, so I had problems with back walkovers on beam for a while. My right leg leads my kick over. I would always put my left hand in front of my right hand instead of in a butterfly position. I almost never got them together in the butterfly position, and when I did, it was crooked, again with...

    WAG Back walkover on beam

    I have all skills for level 5 on beam except for back walkover. I know I can do it because I've done it exactly how you would on a beam except on a line. Everytime I go on the beam I get scared and don't go. Any ideas how I could get over this fear so that I can move up?

    WAG Arm problems in back walkovers

    My daughter used to have a really solid back walkover but stoped practicing it due to a back injury, she’s trying to get it again but now when she’s going in to the bridge her arms give out from under her.
