  Back Bend: A tumbler spreads the legs shoulder width and put your hands straight up by your ears. Look up at your hands and bend your back, Look for the ground, and try to put your hands really close to your feet. Once they hit the ground, your there! This is a very important steppingstone skill

 

  Bridge: This is often used as a limbering exercise for back and shoulder flexibility. The body is in a backward arch with hands and feet flat on the floor. The better bridges will show the shoulders directly above the hands or pushing past the hands if the tumbler has very flexible shoulders.

  Walk over: A gymnastic feat in which the body is bent forward or backward from an upright position, the hands are placed on the floor, and the legs are arced one after the other over the hands to finish in a standing position.
