Everybody has the same problem, remember what is said here to complete a back handspring, defeating your mental block.

Remember to always have something under you, like a mat.

Keep saying to yourself, "Nothing will happen to me, I'll be fine!"

Hope this helped!

How do you pull out of a mental block when playing a sport?

You must go into the back handspring truly believing you can do it. Try doing it in a different area than you usually do it. Use as much power as possible. If it feels like you have too much power, you're doing it right. When trying to learn a back handspring, YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MUCH POWER. Think less about your hands hitting the ground and think about whipping your legs over your head as quickly and forcefully as possible. Don't get scared to hit the ground. It's there to catch you if you mess up. When whipping your legs over, press your legs as tightly as possible together. Squeeze in your muscles and body as tightly as possible. POINT YOUR TOES AND KEEP YOUR ANKLES TOGETHER. Use your hands to help you push out of the handspring and into the landing.

How do you do a back handspring?

The back handspring is a difficult movement for a beginner, but once you learn the art of a back handspring, it becomes easier. First you need to stretch your arms, back, and legs. Then you'll need a spotter. If you don't have a spotter and your a beginner, please wait until you get a spotter, because it is a proven fact that you can break your back or neck doing a back handspring without a spotter. Before you start your back handspring, make sure your in a proper position. Start with your feet together and arms up. Your spotter should be holding your back with one hand, and his/her other hand on your thighs. Next, lean back like you are sitting in a chair, knees directly over your legs. Then, jump and push through your toes while your shoulders go down, and push your feet over the top and to a standing position. Also make sure you can see your hands the whole time. If your at a gym ask if they have any boulders to practice with (just make sure the barrel isn't too small). It is important you work on pretty solid handstands before you try this so your hands can support your weight, so when you go back you don't land on your head and break your neck. You need to work on a lot of bridges, they will help your body be in the correct stretches and shapes for the back handspring. And that is how you do a back handspring.

How do you spot a back half on the trampoline?

Assuming you mean back handspring by back half... Basically the same as if you're on the ground. Kneel behind the person and put one hand near their lower back (you can use two, but one should be fine). Guide them as they jump back. Basically just place your hand under their back and make sure they don't land on their head - push them over in the end if they need a little help getting over. Of course, your spotting will depend on how well the person can do a back handspring already. If they need a lot of help with their back handspring and you're not really sure what you're doing - DO NOT SPOT THEM. They will most likely get hurt without a proper spotter, which it sounds like you're not.
