First off a big thanks to everyone who took the time to fill out the survey. Your questions and comments are extremely helpful.
The Acrobatic Conditioning report is shaping up nicely. I expect it’ll be done later this week.
In the mean time one question that came up more than once went something along these lines. I can do forward rolls no problem, but how to you do a front handspring?
I may be risking starting to sound like a broken record but the answer is to work on a few stunts that’ll lead-up to it. In this case work on the HEADspring first.
And the video will show you how.
As you progress forward in tumbling you will realize that almost all the moves are a variation of some basic movement. In this case that is a spring generated from the back through the legs.
This is the foundational movement of too many stunts to name but here are a few, front handspring, kips, headsprings, snap-downs, roundoffs, etc.
If you can do a good headspring the handspring is not far off. Just lock out your arms and do the same movement.
Good Luck and Good Tumbling,
