i got everything down except flips
« on: June 15, 2006, 06:46:38 PM »
Does anyone have any tips or hints on what i should do to start doing flips?  I know how to do them i just cant execute it.  When I am about to execute it i just stop.  :P I can jump pretty high and i can sprint fast, but I'm scared to do any flips.  :-[ Just need some pointers please! 

PS: I don't have a place nearby with pads and i don't own a trampoline.  Just grass and concrete.

I'd say practice perfecting other movements before including flips. You can never practice the basics too much.

um...besides that, im not touchin this subject...lol

If you got everything down but flips, I really can't believe that. You need to know how to do flips in order to do other tricks, like gainers, x-outs, and the sort. Either you don't have everything down, or you are really lucky.

Find soft grass and just do it.  Bails shouldn't hurt you on grass.  Just don't think about it and go for it.

easier said then done :)

I'd just grab an old mattress put that in your yard and use that as a mat.
If you're still afraid got to a gym.
And always train with a spotter!
