Rahma's insight:

This is another article describing how to do a back handspring. I do think the stepd in doing a back handspring they give are very useful but the pictures are a little off. When you sit to do your back handspring you should not lean forward or drop your chest, you should let your shoulders fall back while you sit. By dropping your chest you are shortening your back handspring. Also the picture of the girl doing s back handspring is a little off, your legs should be straight and your body long. This is also from dropping your chest. I do think the words in this article are useful but the pictures are misleading and will lead to bad habits if used as a tool to get a back handspring.

Rahma's insight:

One of the worst problems I have in my back handspring is my snap down because I do not have a lot of back and upper body strength. This article gives drills to not only improve my snap down but also increase the muscles needed to improve my overall back handspring. During my tumbling privates I can maybe have my coach do these drilsl with me and request other drills to improve my arms and back muscle. Also by duing these drills it will improve my back handspring and help prep me for when I begin to learn how to do a round off back handspring. These drills will also help in my overall goal of making the CWU cheer team. Once I have strengthened my muscles and I have become confident with my back handspring I will be in great shape for try outs!

How To Do a Back Handspring

Cheerleading FAQ: How To Do a Back Handspring, from your About Cheerleading Guide
Rahma's insight:

This article was very usefull, since I have already started working on my back handspring this went over the basic skills in a very detailed way. It says to start on an incline like a cheese mat which is where I have been working for awhile. It describes the snap down drill that the other article talked about to help improve your back handspring. Although after the drills are explained, they do not give detailed examples on actually doing a back handspring. They say try it on a incline with a spotter, then without, then do it on a flat surface with a spotter and then without. There are a lot of other surfaces you should progress through before just going straight to the floor.
