Back handspring, or flic-flac, is the first element with flight that we teach gymnasts. It's one of the steps that opens the door to the world of tumbling in gymnastics.
In the technical analysis, we'll break down, phase by phase, the flic-flac itself as well as the different positions involved in connections with round-off, another flic, or a salto.
Then we'll give you the information you'll need to be able to tell when the prerequisites have been mastered, in other words, when you can begin work on the skill.
The teaching analysis will bring you 30 drills to be able to learn a flic-flac from standing.
In the spotting section we'll give you all the stages needed to be able to teach a flic-flac.
Lastly, we have decided to dedicate the physical preparation video to the dish shape: learn how to tackle it and strengthen it.
Bonus: in the "Live" segment, you'll be able to examine the back handspring as it's being learned. Hone your observation with us as you pick out the main errors, and then learn the strategies to put in place in order to correct them.
