Handspring

Place your strong hand very low on the pole – about shin height. Have your fingers facing down to the ground. Place your weaker hand higher on the pole but do not over stretch this arm. You will need to twist this arm slightly for a stronger grip, making sure your thumb is closer to the ceiling than the floor. Swing your inside leg forwards and backwards to give yourself momentum. When this leg is behind you, jump off the ground with your other foot, aiming to take both legs towards the ceiling. Aim to tuck your legs up together by your chest. Make sure you look towards the ceiling. When you have your balance try to stretch one leg out, and then the other for different variations of the move.

I'd love to hear what you think...
