Dive Roll Floor

Dive Roll

To perform a dive roll, the gymnast should run, gradually increasing their speed. They should punch off the floor with their legs tight and feet together. They should jump into the air with a straight body. At the moment of the punch, the gymnast’s arms should do a back circle and swing upwards. This arm motion will help to increase the height of the jump. After the jump, the gymnast should arch their body slightly while kicking their legs backward. They should keep their chin up with their arms slightly bent out to the side. The kick from the gymnast’s heels will help to flip them forwards. When the gymnast reaches the floor, they should be in a nearly vertical position. They should bend their arms slightly, roll forward and stand up.

Then the athlete jumps forward into the pit, kicking backward with bent legs. The bent arms should lower and follow the legs. For the first few attempts, the gymnast could finish in a seated position, instead of standing. With experience, the rotation in the flight should be faster and the initial jump should be higher. The final goal is for the gymnast to land on their feet in the pit.
