Does anyone have any advice for getting maximum power in back tumbling? Im trying to connect my backtuck to my round off back handspring and am not setting high enough. Any advice is appreciated! đź’—đź’—
 
Can you do standing backhandspring? Standing 2 backhandsprings?

Imo, the best way to improve power in back tumbling is to do rows and rows and rows of three backhandsprings from stand, focusing primarily on making them stretch out as long as possible. The longer they are, the more powerful they'll be.
 
A lot of people at my gym struggle with hurdling. If you can get a really good hurdle, you will have a powerful round off and a powerful bhs and so on. Remember to snap your feet down out of the round off and block off your hands using your shoulders. Do the same in your bhs. Work on exercises for power and you should be good!

Thanks! For a while my hurdle wasn’t stretched out and my arms weren’t at my ears, I feel like wider tumbling makes powerful tumbling.
