I have my round off back handspring and I competed it last season. So, it’s an old skill to me. We recently started summer practice and I moved up a level. This year I’m required to compete a round off back handspring and possible a double bhs which I would have to get my the end of summer. I guess I’m just afraid of not being able to do skills and moving down or getting stuck on a level. This is because I’m really behind age wise in gymnastics and practically need to move up. Because of this I’ve been mental blocking on a round off bhs on floor and tumble track. We also have a new coach and I need time to build up enough trust with her that I would throw it if she was standing there like I did with my other coach. I just need some advice on how I could get over this weird fear because my worst fear is happening, I’ve got a mental block. There is nothing to be afraid of, I should just go for it. But I can’t.
