Taking the Angles out of Tumbling Part 1 Front Tumbling
by: Tony GehmanPart 1 Front Tumbling
Tony Gehman’s Taking the Angles out of Tumbling – Part One: Front Tumbling addresses the technical changes gymnasts need to work on today’s powerful tumbling surfaces. To take advantage of these extremely bouncy tumbling systems we need to teach athletes to work with straighter body lines and use the rebounding capacity of the surfaces. In this video Tony explains why this works better, gives several conditioning drills to strengthen your body and then shows how this applies for forward tumbling. The DVD includes excellent demonstration by North Stars Gymnastics Academy’s elite gymnasts.
