Walkover Variations Take 2!!🎉 Today is walkovers to and from the floor, since there are so many this will carry over to tomorrow as well!! 1️⃣Back walkover to one, or both knees: There are a few different variations here, but are all fairly simple! (a) Start the BWO as normal catch yourself on your 1st foot, as you would, then tuck the 2nd foot to land on that knee. This is the easiest variation. (b) Start as normal, when the 1st foot is approaching the floor keep it full stretched and control yourself to the top of your foot. Then bend the knee, lowering yourself, tuck the 2nd foot and land on both knees. (c) Start as normal. Stop the 1st foot straight up (handstand position), bring the 2nd foot up to meet it & squeeze tight at the top of your handstand. Then lower both legs together, keeping the feet stretch, catch on the tops of your feet and lower to your knees.
2️⃣Front to the knee. (a) Start the FWO as normal, as the first foot approaches the ground, bend the knee slightly, but keep the foot stretched. Catch on the top of your foot and control yourself down to that knee. As you recover, catch yourself on the bottom of the 2nd foot. (b) Come up to a handstand position & squeeze at the top. Arch over and bend both knees slightly as you control yourself over onto the tops of the feet. Lift the hands & recover as you continue to both knees.
3️⃣To Split. (a) Front to split: start walkover as normal, start to go over the 1st foot (like knee variation). As you start to lift the hands & recover, continue sliding the 1st leg back and straight & extend the 2nd leg in front to land in full split. (b) Back to split: start as normal, as the 1st foot approaches the floor start to shift your body towards that side. Lift up the opposite hand, rotate your hips & swing that 1st foot through on the opposite side. Keep the 2nd leg straight & stretched into a split while in the air to land on the ground in a full split with inside hand lifted.
See you tomorrow👀
