Cartwheel Progression Pt.1

In this series, Coach Carl demonstrates progressions to perform the Cartwheel, one of the most basic and common gymnastics and tumbling movements.

In the first video, Carl takes a new approach to start off the Cartwheel progressions by performing the same movement as you would in a normal cartwheel, but in a very tight circle while pushing off and landing on each point of contact.  The key to progressing through this part is to mantain straight arms, legs, and a tight body position while circling even in a tight circumference.

Cartwheel Progression Pt.2

In this series, Coach Carl demonstrates progressions to perform the Cartwheel, one of the most basic and common gymnastics and tumbling movements.

In this video, Carl starts to open up the tight circle into an arc and continues to follow the line by pushing off and landing on each point of contact with straight arms and legs.  Eventually the arc opens up more and becomes straighter, forcing you to keep your body more vertical and tighter.

Cartwheel Progression Pt.3

In this series, Coach Carl demonstrates progressions to perform the Cartwheel, one of the most basic and common gymnastics and tumbling movements.

In this video, Carl demonstrates the frontal cartwheel using what we learned with the side cartwheel. First, we have to get completely vertical by dicussing the proper set-up with the arms and legs to lunge and reach into the movement. Then, by changing the start and finish positions we will get the frontal cartwheel.

Cartwheel Progression Pt.4

In this series, Coach Carl demonstrates progressions to perform the Cartwheel, one of the most basic and common gymnastics and tumbling movements.

In this video, Carl continues to break down the frontal, or squared-hip, cartwheel. Carl begins by starting a cartwheel with squared hip, but finishing in the side cartwheel on the arc facing the opposite direction.  Next, Carl starts the squared hip cartwheel and finishes again in the side cartwheel, but this time on the straight line.  Finally, Carl demonstrates the squared hip cartwheel start to finish, on the straight line.
