Gymnastics Moves & Routines for Beginners : Bridge Progression to a Back Walkover


My name is Sibylle Walters. I’m the owner-director
of Flairs Gymnastics located in Davie, Florida. You can find us on the web at www.flairsgymnastics.com.
And now we’re demonstrating a bridge progression to a back walkover. Hailey and Krissie please
lie down on the floor, position your hands in the right way. Open your legs please and
push up into a bridge nice and tall. That must first be done before you can go on. Okay,
tuck your head in, go down and go back up. And go back up, this time lift one leg up
in the air, the leg that’s your favorite leg lift it up and bring it back down. Tuck
your head in and rock and roll. After you bend backwards, make sure you rock and roll.
Now Hailey go demonstrate it over the log roll please. She will now stand up, she will
now bend over backwards and she will bring her legs over, nice and easy. Ready and over.
Excellent. One more time please. Arms up and slowly over and down. Good. Now Krissie will
do it with yall. It’s called a back bend kick over. Open your legs, wide slowly, hold.
One leg up and over.

  1. You need to master backbend kick over before you can attempt back walkover. Backwalkover is done off one leg. What you need more than anything, which may come as a surprise, is not legs or back, its good shoulder flexibility.

  2. Oh Yeah That Really Helps ,NOT! Omg How Can You Show That , What About Those 99.9% Of People Who Dont Have A Big Cylinder To Flip Over You Knob Cheese!

  3. yeah in a proper bridge your legs have to be straight so your shoulders are open, otherwise you won't be able to do a bridge kick over nor a back walkover. a back walkover is really easy!

  4. how long should u practice the bridge b4 u can stand up and lean backwards into the bridge? how can u tell if ur ready to lean backwards vs just doing a bridge?

  5. lol, I agree with stunninbbegal 😉 You really are suppose to keep your knees and ankles together when doing a bridge. It stretches better and it looks alot better, that also what the judges look for if you compete.

  6. when i was learning how to do a back walkover i couldnt get it so my gymnastics teacher made me go into a back bend and just keep trying to kick her hand and i kept doing it over and over and she kept moving her hand back farther and farther till i finally got over.
    u should get a friend to do that for you just keep trying to kick their hand. sorry if it doesnt work for you it worked for me

  7. get a friend to spot you when you go down. you probably cant get it because your a little scared. so when your going back have someone hold your back

  8. I'd really like to learn to do this but I'm afraid to break my head or something else. It would be very usefull to have someone to help you…

  9. maybe coz u started tring to do it with both legs so ure used to it.anyways,its ok coz if can do it with 2 legs its gonna be easier for u to do back handspring =D

  10. Oh come on! What about me then wish I could video my moves but eventhough I once had asma,I eventually learnt to do handstands and even a backward cartwheel from my young reflexes experience.Try get 2 feet bhind head can cure back pains.

  12. Actually if you were listening the instructor mentioned that they were going to do a Back bend kick over near the end. And plus the video is meant to show progression, not the actual back walkover.

  13. i can't do it either so far, you need practise to develop the right muscles to get you over, i do bridge standing in front of a tree and then i put one leg on the tree which helps me flip over…

  14. Be careful not to throw your shoulders back unevenly. Make sure your body remains square throughout the entire handspring. Also it's key to keep your chin up just a tiny bit and to keep your arms up beside your ears.

  15. O SHYT!!THEY R MADDDD FLEXIBLE! lol! noooo wayyyyy am i doing that!i cant get the bridge that far.

  16. I do fine when I do the bridge, but when I go to kick over I fall. ha. not cool, I'll NEVER make cheerleading unless I get to some gymnastics classes. grrrr…

  17. if you start against a wall you learn how to do it correctly. Ive only been in gymnastics for about two months and I know how to do it good because of the wall.

  18. sorry!!!guyz you will find a bloody body in your closet hanging there haunting you and your family and if you want to stop it just send this to 6 other videos in 3o min or this will happen good luck guys

  19. ok this is stupid ! how can anyone at home learn anything from this ?! do you really think that everyone at home has a log roll ??

  20. @cupidgurl15 it's never too late for gymnastics 🙂 and to recover from a bridge you rock back and forth and try to Rick up towards your toes 🙂

  21. i can get into a bridge off the ground, but when i want to lean back i cant do it unless someone is spotting me. bcuz they puch my shoulders back. how can i do it without anyone spotting me?

  22. If you need help heres what you do you go against a wall and go into a bridge and put one foot on the wall and then the other and relax and push over I hope this helped!

  23. ya how in the world im i supposed todo that that girl who demonstrated it all she did was plop down on the log, which where am i supposed to buy one of those?, put her hands on the ground and rolled off she has it easy
