A back kick over(same as back-bend kick over) is where you go into a bridge (all 4

limbs on the ground) then pick one leg up and kick over. A back WALK over is a continuous motion from a stand where only 3 of you limbs ever touch the ground at the same time. I hope that helped!

I would say a back walkover. I mastered the front walkover first though because I think the front walkover is a lot cooler then the back walkover.

The back walkover is actually pretty simple. All you do is go back into a back bend position and kick your legs over. It takes a few days to get your legs over but you WILL get it so KEEP trying!!

The front walkover is a lot more fun to do. Go into a handstand and kick over into a back bend position and come up. IF you cant come up yet don't worry. It takes a lot of stomach muscles but keep practicing and you will master them.

hope I helped

What is the difference between a front walkover and a front limber?

A front limber is hand stand that falls to a bridge. After the bridge is complete you stand up from two feet. A front walk over is all one fluid movement. The only leg that hits the ground is the leg opposite of the leg you start out standing on. When you land a front walkover your "bad" leg should be on the ground and your "good" leg (or favorite) should be in the air at 90 degree angle.

Who invented the front walkover and when was it made?

The front walkover was invented by Ellayna Mackenzie Jones when she was six years old. She was trying to do a handstand and flipped over. It was originally named the handstand flip, but when Ellayna told the gymnastic experts about the name she came up with, they thought the name should be improved. It was officially named the "front walkover" and the country approved of it in 1934.

Is a front Ariel harder to learn then a side Ariel?

Yes definitley! Just think of it like this, i front aerial is practically a forwards walkover with no hands and a side aerial is a cartwheel with no hands. A cartwheel is much easier than a walkover and is one of the first moves you learn in gymnastics training, so therefore i definitley say that a side aerial is alot easier that a front aerial.
