I've seen some of the front flip threads but haven't got an answer on this question particularly. Right before I throw, should my hands be above my head or more out in front of me at body level? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
Glued to my hips, off small stuff.
I feel like it's better to rotate around your midsection rather than... anything else. Still throw them down when going off the lip, for that forwards momentum, but keep them there.
Although, not sure if you should be worried or thinking about the arms. Just do it off something small-ish and safe, and you'll have it down in no time.
but i didn't pop forward enough in that video. you need to pop forward then tuck. i wanna learn supermans so my frontflips look cleaner. if someone could give me a couple examples of frontflips without throwning they're hands, please show me.
well i kinda have them right to the sides of my helmet and throw them down. i guess it depends on the size of the jump though, but i have never done one over 25-30 ft so i cant really say for big kickers
when learning, put em over ur head, then throw down and grab ur knees in a tuck. when u can flick like simon dumont, just have ur arms chillin down low, and kinda push them out to the side as u roll into the flip
You dont set your rotation with your arms so you can detach them if you want.
If you cant detach then I would recommend throwing them forward on jumps where you dont have to huck. On huck-frontflips I recommend hips or infront of stomach.
Your hand are never supposed to go over your head.
