A Pro’s Cartwheel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3Z5Ag9AG gY&feature=player_detailpage
Key Differences DifferenceWhat happens because of this Bex is facing side on, where is the pro is facing forward She has a lot more power to push off her front leg. Look from front on she's in a straight line and balanced while in the air, Bex’s legs are not in the straight line and are leaning towards the ground. Bex loses balance and falls forward, the pro executes the cartwheel still in a straight line. Pro allows slow movements while performing the skill, I flick myself over really fast. Lose balance. Pro has strong abdominals, Bex doesn’t.Lose balance and cartwheel is not in a straight line.
How to improve Analyse a pro doing it. Break down movements. A lot of stretch and core work.
