Somersault Combo Training

The last couple of months I’ve been feeling some minor annoying injuries in my shoulder and left leg, so haven’t been training as frequently and it felt aggravated when going to open gymnastics and throwing myself around like an idiot!

B-Boy Flips and Power Training

Last night was the first open gymnastics session I’ve been to in a few weeks and first time throwing any flips since BodyPower Expo last month (which was tremendous fun by the way)!

After B-Boy Marius’ advice, from our workshop at Yorkshire Dance we ran last month, who said to try combine all the power moves you have when you’re training them so you build your stamina as well as improve your transitions and different power moves I decided to try combo all the flips I could into one set. Even though I haven’t trained somersaults for a while, I felt more confident than ever throwing back tucks, gainers, websters and was even working on side flips which I’m still getting to grips with…

So above is a short clip from the result of training last night, I did manage to get the transitions a bit cleaner but didn’t record it.

Ideally I should be rolling out and throwing a side flip at the end, but I couldn’t figure out the transition and footing properly, so will work on this next time I’m at the SingleBound open gymnastics session!
