    Ok guys! I know this has probably been posted before but I need help with my problems! Ok, so I've been working on my tuck for 3 years, I've gotten rid of my bad habits I used to have and now my coaches at my gym tell me I'm piking my tuck but at camp the told me I wasn't tucking( like my feet were kicking my butt) I have confidence in it, but whenever I throw it, I land on my knees! Help!

    If you're dragging you feet behind, think about pulling your knees/feet over your head when you tuck. I find when mine start slowing down, I have to think about pulling my feet over my head, not just tucking my knees up

    ^ yes to that!

    For another visual, try to kiss your knees. This will lift your hips and prevent you from throwing your head back.
