A standing back flip is easier, frankly. Plus, I've written a tutorial on how to do one and haven't written one for a front flip, so...
I'm 30+ and do flips all the time.
I've been doing YAYOG for a while now and want to meet my goal of being able to do pull-ups. It made me think of other fitness goals that fell by the wayside over the years.
When I was 4 years old I took a gymnastics class. I didn't get to continue very long but the flexibility picked up there stayed with me through the years. One thing from that experience I really want to be able to do is a front flip.
What can I do at home to ramp up to that ability? I'm not able to take a class now but am open to it in the near future.
I partly wish I hadn't read this. I'm now thinking I need to learn how to do a back flip. I'm 34.
Healthy is the new wealthy.
I'm 29, and I feel I need to learn how to do this as well :P
Well then, let's all go for it!
Gold Medal Bodies looks great. Hope to try it out soon!
Agreed back flip would be easier. I can do a front handspring and a kip up at soon to be 35. Back flip I still only do on soft surface or on trampoline. From a stand still with very little bounce that is.
