You don't necessarily need to be flexible for a walkover. For a front walkover you want to have a solid handstand bridge come up and good stomach muscles. For a balk walkover you want to have a good handstand bride kick over and flexible shoulders. It would help if you had one of your splits to make it look nicer:)

Are gymnasts supposed to be flexible?

No, because they will teach you to be flexible. Ummmm well that's true but like GYMNASTS are flexible and are supposed to be. But im guessing that you aren't a gymnast seeing as thought you asked this question. So yes you would have to be flexible if you are a gymnast. _____________________________________________________________ I am a gymnast myself, and even after many years of training i have not yet mastered my split. No, you do not have to be flexible, but you can't be a stiff board either. Usually you will get more flexible after years of training, but i believe that if you're not the flexible kind of person, don't start gymnastics because you could seriously hurt yourself. So no, gymnasts don't need to be flexible, but if you want to be a good gymnast and achieve really anything in the sport then yes you do need to be pretty flexible, though flexibility is not difficult to acheive, just do some light stretches once or twice a week and you'll see a marked improvement. Gymnasts don't have to be super flexible, but do need to have some sort of flexibility. If is a gymnast is not flexible enough, certain skills cannot be done because to do some skills you must be flexible in certain positions.
