Ask any brand-new gymnast, cheerleader or tumbler the complying with question: What’s scarier, walk backwards or walking forwards?”

…and around 95% the the time, they’ll answer “Backwards!”

And it makes sense. We humans LIKE to understand where we’re going. It’s normal, that natural and it’s how we’re wired.

Tumbling backwards is only more comfortable after years and also years the training.

Personally, I’d rather perform a dual back tuck 보다 a dual front tuck any type of day that the week.

Why? because I can spot my landing. Well… many of the time anyway
