How to Do a Standing Back Tuck | Gymnastics Lessons


A standing back tuck is the same thing as
a back flip. I feel that more likely than not, cheerleaders
use the term standing back tuck. Gymnasts would use back flip. Pretty much, it’s the same thing as a back
flip. You need to use your arms. You need to use your legs and your stomach. We’re going to have Alyssa start off, with
her arms above and she’s going to be pointing her toes to the floor in a high position,
and then she’s going to swing her arms and lean back. Grab her knees to her chest and she’s going
to stick it. Yeah, all right. Alyssa’s going to show us a little bit better
of a back tuck. It’s called a stick in gymnastics and that’s
when you don’t move, you bend your knees and the judges can’t find any deductions when
you do this. It’s a cleaner way of doing this skill and
the judges like it even better. Here she goes. Arms up, knees up and stick. Nice. Sticking is a position that every gymnast
has to learn. Alyssa’s doing it right now. You can relax. It’s something that takes time. Obviously, you cannot stick, you cannot land
perfectly every time. That’s essentially what a stick is. It’s a perfect landing. When you think of someone getting a perfect
10, it’s because they stuck their landing and it just takes time. You have to practice, practice. Jump off mats. You need to get really strong legs, so if
you jump off a high surface and land with your knees bent, your chest forward, it will
really help you when you do harder, more difficult skills and trying to stick and receive no
deduction. Alyssa’s going to demonstrate another stick
landing for us. This is something you can do to help practice,
learn a stick landing. She’s going to jump nice and high off the
block and she’s going to land on the floor with her knees bent and her chest forward. Go ahead, and doing this motion over and over
again will eventually lead to you sticking every landing that you do.

  1. Wtf… Gymnast hate when people say backflip. What are you saying? It's basically forbidden word in gymnastics… Plus you didn't teach any about HOW to do the backtuck… In fact all you taught was how to stick a backtuck… We came to see how to do the backtuck not how to stick it.

  2. I got mine by myself off a mat and I am trying to go lower and lower and finally get my back tuck.

    And gymnasts and cheerleaders call it back TUCK but PARKOUR people call it back FLIP

  3. you didn't teach how to do a back tuck and it's not a back flip there is no such thing as a backflip in gymnastics

  4. Oh god i know she is a professional or something but i still need to critisize.

    Do a wider tuck that your knees don't hit your face, i've got experience. That shallow tuck looks ugly imo.

    Don't look back when you're doing the flip. For me atleast it helps me spin faster.

  5. Uh… the first thing you said was a backflip is the same thing as a back tuck but that is not true in a backflip your legs are bent but in a back TUCK your in a ball….

  6. gymnast use back tuck. back tuck back tuck back tuck. we call it a back tuck because it can also be a back pike, a back layout, etc. so gymnast use back tuck.

NOWHERE DOES IT SAY "HOW TO STICK A BACK TUCK" IM SURE MOST PEOPLE HERE SEARCHED UP "HOW TO DO A BACK TUCK " OR "HOW TO DO A BACK TUCK FOR BEGIINERS" NOT "LEARN HOW TO STICK A BACK TUCK FROM A COMPLETE IDIOT!!" like if you agree 😂
