Basically, Front Handspring vaults have 3 major parts: pre-flight,

block, and post-flight.

They are interdependent, meaning, if the first doesn't happen, the rest won't. You need to have a good run down the runway, and approach the springboard to where you hit it where the springs are. Now we need to work on your pre-

flightA good drill would be to put a springboard on the floor and take a step and arm circle onto the board. When you hit the board, jump up and drive your heels out in front of you- not too much because you want to land on your feet.

Once you have that down, we need to work on your main problem- the block.

A good drill would be to arm circle into a handstand, and push through your shoulders to the point in which you pop off your hands for a split second.

This will also help with your post flight.

During your post flight, you want to stay hollow and have good form, meaning the basics, such as pointed toes.

That should fix your vault- hope this helps!

Do you do in gymnastics?

Gymnastics includes a series of moves such as the back-handspring, front-handspring, back-walkover, front walk-over, cartwheel, one-handed cartwheel, round-off, back-tuck, front-tuck, forward roll, backward roll, hand-stand and aerial. These are some of the tumbling moves Bars: Front hip circle, back hip circle, release, that little turn around while you're upside down thingy (sorry I don't know what it's called), handstand on the bar, and some others I don't know. Vault: Straddle jump, hand-stand, and all kinds of tumbling that they do over the pommel horse. Balance Beam: Back and front walk-overs, back-handspring, front handspring, rotations, front and back tucks, hand-stands, rolls, cart wheels, and others I am unaware of. My favorite is Tumbling. I do gymnastics myself, so I have a lot of experience. I am going today at 3:00 to sign up at the YMCA. It's been a while since I've been in a class. I've been taking a break. Wish me luck!
