Some Front Handsprings on Vault

I had a request to do some stuff on front handsprings on vault, and I am working on that.  In the meantime, though, I wanted to gather up some video of some of our front handsprings over the last few years, and see if we could start up a discussion about the front handspring on vault.  Take some time to watch the videos, and then post a comment about them…the differences, problems that you see, etc.  These vaults are not necessarily our very best or worst, just some random vaults that have been put on youtube.

These are right at the beginning.  You don’t have to watch the entire videos.  (And I’m not that fat anymore either…I’m so embarassed)


I would really love to have an intense conversation about this skill.  I think that there is a lot to learn about the front handspring vault for all of us.

    in the first video, the second flight of all the gymmasts their chests were a little to open. it would be better if they kept their chests rounded until landing.

    To me, it looks as though the vault needs to be raised so the girl(s) hit the table at the optimum angle, and they need a more hollow rounded “plate” position after the block.
