Back Walk Over

The back walkover starts from a stand; the body is stretched and tall with arms covering the ears. All the weight of your body is on the back leg, you simply point the toes of your front leg and keep it straight. Begin by reaching back with eyes on hands one vertebra at a time. As your arms, shoulders and head go back, your front leg comes up like a see saw. As your hands contact the floor you pass through a handstand with your legs split apart, you kick your back leg over. You will arrive back into a lunge to finish the skill. Shoulders must remain stretched throughout this skill and a lever or T position should be maintained throughout the skill. To be able to do a back walkover, upon contact with the floor your shoulders should be pressed backwards so they are right over the tops of wrists.
