Forward Roll Progression Pt.4


The Forward Roll is a basic element for gymnastics and acrobatics. This movement practices your ability to change orientation, completing a full rotation on the ground while holding a specific shape such as tuck, straddle, and pike positions.

In this video, Coach Carl continues with the Forward Roll progression to bring the feet closer and closer in with the Forward Straddle Roll until it becomes a Forward Pike Roll.  With the Forward Pike Roll, managing your speed and momentum is key to finishing the roll on your feet before trying to stand up out of it.
