The gymnast should start in a standing position. They should squat down and place their hands on the floor. As they do this, they should tuck their head down, and perform the forward roll. Their back should roll onto the floor smoothly from the neck to their buttocks. They should finish the skill in a squat position and immediately extend their legs to a stand.
From a standing position, the gymnast should squat down on the high end of a cheese mat or wedge. They should face down the incline and place their hands on the wedge in front of their feet. They should raise their hips, tuck their head down, and push off their feet to perform a tucked forward roll. After this, the gymnast should finish the skill in a straight stand with their arms stretched by their ears, or slightly forward. It is important for the gymnast to maintain the tuck position throughout the roll, and to stand up without using their hands to push on the mat.
The gymnast should stand on the high end of a wedge in a straddle position, facing down the incline. They should reach between and behind their legs, placing their hands on the mat to perform the forward roll with their feet together. Their arms should reach forward and up at the end of the skill. The upper back should be the first part of the body to touch the wedge after the hands. This roll can also be done to straddle stand.
