Hey guys whats up. So, I'm a 16 year old high school student and I want to tryout for my schools cheer leading team. I weigh 142 pounds, thin my height is 5'4. #Tumbling! I always wanted to do a back flip, just the thrill of turning upside down is magnificent! BUT, i started gymnastics when I was 8 -12 years old. And i stoped until now as I am 16. I want to have my back handspring and toetouches in 1 week starting may 7 until may 14! How do I do it! I forgot to even do a back walkover! Please people what should I do!
Reexamine the timeline for your goal. You need to slowly work back into condition to do this. You risk injury rushing into it without preparing your body.
Yeah, what you said. Our muscles have a certain amount of memory. So that might not be so much of a problem. But when your bones, joints, and ligaments change, attempting these moves 'cold' could result in career ending injury.
