Move Background

This variation allows us to start small and create a framework for how we can approach the majority of the variations below. Instead of doing the full cartwheel, we are going to move in a “V” shape. This gives us more control and decreases the mobility demands on our wrists, hamstrings, and shoulders.

Step by step guide

  • If moving your legs over your body is still scary to you, it is best to hover your feet slightly above the ground.
  • It's important to be comfortable moving laterally to make it easier to do more advanced variations.
  • Over time, progress to a wider and wider “V”, until it is essentially straight.
  • Start by hovering the feet over the ground and slowly progress by kicking the back leg at harder up to get your trunk above your hips.
