Ok so I have good form in a back-handspring and my power is perfect but, I have a fear of going upside down backwards. It's totally a comfort thing now, I just want to know how I can get over it?
To help get over fear of going back is to constantly reassure yourself as well as constant repititon to build up muscle memory.and it sounds like you’re going to tumbling set goals for yourself such as having your coach put his/her hand further away each time you throw your back handspring
But always breath and stay calm never get frustrated with yourself great tumbling doesn’t come over night no one starts off doing fulls lol
How can get my toe touch & herkie? Cus i cam barely get my legs off the ground :(
That mean you need to work on 3 things:leg strength,hip strength,and flexibility
Start doing squats & starbursts.also try to get your middle splits to loosen your hip flexors so do lots of butterfly stretches and sumo wrestler stretches.past buy some ankle weights and do leg lifts as well as your jumps with them on all of this should help :)
Tips on being strong please! Im a base in our group could you kindly help me please! :)
Well you’re gonna get stronger regardless but yes you’re gonna need to condition a lot.Bases use most of their strength from their legs but of course you can’t have scrawny arms either lol try going to your schools weight room or maybe use some weights that your dad has at home or buy your own and workout with those.Try doing push ups often.back in hs my team had no choice.We did push-ups at practice as well as at games which helped us get stronger. Also do squats or better yet do star bursts.omg they’re horrible but starbursts target your arms legs and tummy.
A starburst is sorta similiar to a jumping jack but not really.
Basically you start off squatting on the ground with your bottom near the ground with both of your arms on the side of your legs and your legs together
So kind of like this picture but with your fists on the ground and your back straight:
Then you jump all the way up as high as you can and make a star shape hence the name starbursts lol
And then immediately return to your start position
Doing about 5 of these will tire you out a little imagine doing 30 they’re horrible
How much do you half to weigh to be a flyer? Do you half to be tiny? Cause I'm 5'2 and 110 pounds
I don’t think there is a requirement just be flexible and be able to pull your weight
whats it feel like to win worlds?
