how to do a round-off backhandspring but when I land my knees like I am
crouching down and I want to land straight and I want to learn how to
do a round-off backtuck if you have any suggestions please e-mail me back
so I can be ready for cheer try-outs.
put an end to your crouching... do NOT step-out of your handspring...
INSTEAD... SPLIT the legs as they pass through the handstand position...
and STEP backwards... one leg at a time. (like a lunge-step-exit)
This does TWO things:
1) It will FORCE you to identify WHEN you pass through the handstand position.
Yes the handSPRING is a handSTAND based skill! If you don't make SURE
you do a SUPERBLY formed handstand in the middle of it then your handSPRING
will be poorly formed.
2) It will help you keep your HIPS elevated on the landing.
After you've practiced a few HUNDRED of those... you'll be ready for good
rebounds and tucks
