When doing a forward roll in beginning gymnastics, place your hands on the ground, head between your hands, and push your hips over your head. Use your momentum to stand up from a forward roll with help from a gymnastics coach in this free video on beginning gymnastics.
Hi, my name is Andre and this is Kim. She's going to help me demonstrate a forward roll for beginning gymnastics. The materials you will need are a floor and a wide open space. When you begin, squat down with your feet together. You place your hands on the ground, head between hands and you push your hips over your head. In beginning gymnastics, you should have straight legs and pointed toes and when you stand up, you should try not to use your hands and to reach forward and try to get your hips over your ankles. Now, I'm going to demonstrate this a little bit slower. Begin by placing your head between your hands and straighten your legs, put your hip right over your head. Don't use your hands to stand up; rather than using your hands, make sure you reach forward and stand up. My name is Andrea, and Kim has just helped me demonstrate a forward roll for beginning gymnastics.
