I've looked for a thread about this but didn't see anything, so sorry if this topic has already been discussed somewhere else! So according to the rules, front handsprings are legal in level 2 running tumbling. Why do you never see them? I understand it takes more out of an athlete and is hard to make look good, but it seems like you would still see a few in routines. Or are they there and I'm just looking in the wrong place? Lol About 1/3 of our junior 2 have amazing, nearly perfect front handsprings. Another third have them but they aren't as pretty. It's not really something we've worked at in tumbling, just something they've picked up. How, if at all do most coaches incorporate them into their routines? Or are they more work than they're worth?
