I need help on Front Flips!
« on: March 17, 2015, 01:30:38 PM »
I'm pretty new to parkour but I'm very determined to get better at it.  Only recently, however, I've been practicing my front flip.  I finally overcame the fear of doing the initial flip, but now when I do it, I either end up on my butt or landing in a crouching position.  I've tried many different ways to better my flipping, but I just can't seem to put my finger on what i'm doing wrong.

Any help at all would be appreciated, Thank you! :)

You throwing your arms straight down into the ground, the big green thing that you want to get away from.

A proper front is your arms set up and then you tuck throws your hips over your head, this creates height and rotation.

Along with your tucking to late you want to tuck before you head is up side down, but your tucking way after that.

other than that it's good.

Thank you so much!  :) I figured it had something to do with the tuck. I'll try again tomorrow, and then I'll be back with the results!    ;D Thanks again!
