Floor- How to do a Roundoff

A Round off is a very important skill in gymnastics. You need it to do many other skills like back handsprings. Round offs are hard to learn but if you stay consistent and never give up you will get it.

Step 1: Start with a run and hurdle with a straight leg. Practice this consistently until your hurdle is powerful.

Step 2: After the hurdle you will put your hands down just like in a cartwheel and have your back leg come up behind you and your other leg will follow. After that snap down your legs quickly and if you’ve done it right your body will naturally rebound.

Step 3: During your rebound, bounce through your toes and keep your body tight. Then keep practicing. You won’t get it on your first try.
