It's Tumble Tuesday! It's now time for the drill of the month. This month drill helps the learning process of connecting the round off (R) back handspring (BHS). Although there are many drills to help learn the connection, the R flyback as been the most popular and successful drill in learning the R, BHS. See the video below for the drill.
To learn how to connect the R BHS by focusing on standing up on the roundoff with the feet in front of the body. Also to learn the timing of the connection.
1) Resilite Pit (If you don't have a resi then you can stack up two wedges andd place a 8 inch mat on top)
2) Sting mat or panel mat. This serves two purposes. First purpose is to allow the student to know where to put their hands. Secondly, it helps to stretch the round off to generate more turnover to build momentum to go backwards.
Place sting mat at least 3 feet away from the resi. If using two wedges, make sure you set up the wedge so the student is doing the flyback up hill (not shown in the video).
Best of luck!
