This new GymneoLive is the first in a series of four videos on the introductory sessions for teaching a back tuck on floor.
For these sessions, you'll be with Angelo Ritorto and three young gymnasts from the EGC Colomiers club.
In this first part, you'll find a sample lesson for tumbling using shoulder stand to help teach the tuck position.
Generally speaking, we would use this sequence at the beginning of training, after a general warm-up.
The goal is to lead gymnasts in an experience that helps them to understand and sense what a 'tuck' position is. After that, in the training circuit, we'll ask them to look for this position in a more dynamic context.
