My name is Andrea, and Paige is going to help me demonstrate a tuck jump for beginning gymnastics. The materials you will need for this are an open space and a soft mat. Tuck jump is a common skill used for beginning gymnastics because it will be used a lot later in gymnastics. When doing a tuck jump you swing your arms to do the jump. They come up to your ears and then you jump. You want your arms to stay by your ears and your legs to tuck into your chest. Then you come down and land with your hands right in front of you, bending your legs and your shoulders centered over your hips. Your chest should not be in front, or behind at the beginning or at the end of a tuck jump. Paige is going to demonstrate a little bit of a faster tuck jump. My name is Andrea, and Paige has just demonstrated a tuck jump.
