Back Tucked

The back tucked somersault can be performed from standing, from round off, or from a back handspring. During the take-off, the gymnast extends the arms overhead, the head is in a neutral position, and body should be slightly arched in the vertical with the hips slightly in. The gymnast should rebound from the floor strongly with tight arms and quickly bring bent knees overhead. The arms perform a back swing and catch the thighs or knees. Before landing, the athlete opens the body and raises the arms forward and over the horizontal. Land with bent legs no more than 45° and feet together. Ideally, the gymnast should stick on the floor.

Back Layout on Trampoline

The trampoline is a very important apparatus, in which the gymnast’s coordination improves and helps them learn flips and turns easier. In this case it helps to improve the back layout. The rebounds onto the tramp should be performed exactly in the center. The same should happen during the flip. The rebound and the landing should be at the same place in the middle of the tramp. This is one of the indications that the layout is correctly executed.

Front Swing Flat Release in the Pit

This drill should be performed from the front swing. In the upswing around the horizontal position, the gymnast should be hollow, should release, and should land in the same position in the foam pit on their back.

Dismount with Assistance

Perform the flip with a spotter. The coach should hold the gymnast and prevent them from flipping too early, too close to the bar, or opening up during the flight. While assisting, the coach should correct the gymnast’s execution of the skill.

Dismount with Belt

This is another type of drill with assistance. The difference with the previous drill (dismount with assistance) is that with the belt the gymnast is a little bit more independent, they could perform higher flips and eventually, the coach could more effectively assist them with a multiple flipping dismount.
