The magic tumbling formula…
Let me ask you a personal question: Have you ever wished for a tumbling pass? You know what I’m talking about – the thought of having a magic lamp where a genie pops out, grants you any three tumbling skills you want, and POOF…
Learn to do a front flip!
A front tuck is (probably) the first front salto you learn as a gymnast. Aside from that, a front tuck is in the level 5 routine. So, it’s an important gymnastics skill to learn and master. As you advance in gymnastics, you will probably want to do tumbling passes that start with a front tuck step-out.
A floor routine lasts 90 seconds, so show the judges what you got in that short amount of time!
