Can you do a back flip?!?!

Hi All,

So today I’m going to share a video for back tucks, and one for double backs. Hopefully you all got the joke in the title. I’m sure most of us who were gymnasts remember conversations along the lines of “I do gymnastics” and someone responding with the sentiment “OMG, can you do a back flip?!”

This first video is a nice compilation of drills by Mary Lee Tracy. The one I use probably most of any of these is the jump to candle. I want kids to be able to get from right side up, to upside down quickly.

This second video is a really good series of drills for double backs. Be careful the first time you have kids flipping this drill, but have fun with it. It’s GREAT.

What are your favorite drills for back tucks and doubles?
