i learnt to do back flips by doing it into water. no fear there. then once i overcame it i learnt to stick the landing. it also helped me to realise i was jumping too hard, worried for my head, I would have landed flat on my back if i were on mats
i can tip you on frotn flips but i just wanted to know which is easier back or front
use your arms - the momentum thy give you is unbelievable run the or just stand ready for the flip wit your arms above you, as u jump throw your arms down and back while jumping and leaning forward, as you start to see the floor again bring ur legs outwards
keep practicing this and should work
Wrong, dont give advise unless you know its correct.
Ok here for the real advise.
As this is the first time you are doing them always do them with a casual run up. You don't need to sprint like crazy a gentle jog should be fine. Take a hop not to big, no bigger than a metre. Make sure you are leaning back. This will create the 'block' (The spring from the ground upwards).
Now aim up look at a angle upwards not forwards a little higher. The throw your arms down or behind either technique will create momentum.
Bring your knees in hard and tuck your shins. Not knees! Shins will create a tighter Tuck. Good luck!
Also in my opinion back tucks are so much easier but they have the scare factor of going backwards. Practise safely.
Moved to off topic because flips are not parkour therefore not parkour discussion.
Thanks for that, but is there any methods that will boost up your confidence in doing front / back flips? BEcause whenever i attempt a front flip my confidence plummets and i end up landing on my back, which really hurts. Any tips?
