How can I learn to do back walkovers?


Answer by  Katie47 (22)

The hardest part is building up arm strength to support your body. A good way to build up this strength is to start doing back walkovers with your legs elevated from the ground (maybe on a couch) and gradually lowering the height until you're doing them from the ground.

First, make sure you can do a back bend. Then practice getting into your backbend from a standing position. Once you've got that down, practice kicking your legs over from a backbend. Put the two together doing it slowly. When you get comfortable with that, try a back walkover.

The first thing to do is a backbend where your hands touch the floor forming a bridge. Rock back and forth several times,elevating one leg in the air and pushing your chest past your hands as you kick off the ground. Remember to keep your legs straight.

First perfect a handstand, then start to test stability and flexibility by extending your legs over. Ensure a partner is there to catch and support your back and always work over a crash mat. Eventually you'll be able to walkover.

If you do gymnastics, ask your pt or other higher level girls. If not, you probably won't ever learn to do it on your own, but having a friend there will help, they will hold you in the bridge position and make sure your bridge doesn't collapse!
