Gymnastics Drills: Walkover, Limber, and Back Handspring


These gymnastics drills help the gymnast learn the correct positioning and timing of the shoulder and core muscles for a safe and efficient back handspring. They break down the back handspring and walkover into progressions and easy to understand body positions. With frequent and consistent training the gymnast will develop very strong and efficient back handsprings, useful for advanced tumbling passes on floor exercise and flight series on balance beam. Once mastered, a good back handspring can become efficient enough to use as a transition or springboard for more difficult skills such as a back tuck, full twist, and even a double back! We have published both sets of drills in one book because it is imperative that the gymnast master walkovers and limbers prior to learning the back handspring. Some of the walkover drills will help those gymnasts not yet confident enough to reach back to a bridge from standing, while other drills train the muscles necessary to perform these movements with ease. Many of the drills and exercises can be used for flexibility training with more advanced gymnasts.
