Back Walkover Tutorial
How to do a Back Walkover
We have had lots of requests to show back walkovers in more detail. Katrina and Sloane show you how to go into a back bridge and how to do a back walkover. These do take practice – make sure you are warmed up before you start.
Your hands should not be too far away from your body and your fingers should be pointed in the same direction as your feet. Do not bend your arms when you are going into your back walkover.
Once you can do a basic walkover, try to improve your form.
These back walkovers should be done with your legs straight and stretched and your feet pointed. Try and get them in one smooth movement and don’t stop in a bridge.
Back walkovers should be done on mats or softer surfaces when you are practicing. It is also a good idea to work with a partner or ‘spotter’ to help you do them correctly and get your legs over.
Good luck getting your back walkover!
