Easy-on-the-Bones and Fun Drill for Back Tucks

I don’t know about you but, the older I get the more my fear of back tumbling grows and with that, my technique falters.

As long as you don’t get in a bad habit of undercutting, this looks like a fun, easy on the  joints, drill for setting and opening the hips.

And even if you never do another back tuck on the floor by yourself? Who cares?! The drill is fun and good exercise! Thanks for GymnasticsCoaching.com for blogging about this drill. And the wonderful folks at Gymnastics-skills.com for making it.


 Thank you Cristina at Gimnastas.net for alerting me to this meet. I love getting inspiration from other countries master’s programs. From the videos this meet looks very well run. I love seeing the kids in the beginning of the first video cheering on the adults! What a wonderful way for kids to learn that gymnastics is a sport that can be done for lifelong health, fitness and fun! Check out the British veteran’s code of points here or join their Facebook group. Have any of you competed in this meet?
