Backyard Gymnastics: 4 Fun Moves to Practice at Home!

Sisters doing gymnastics together in their backyard cartwheels and handstands

Want to start practicing gymnastics at home?

Whether gymnasts want more practice or a good way to get some energy out, gymnastics can be safely done at home! Our gym has padded mats and spring floors to soften falls – it can be a good idea for gymnasts to practice their basics on soft areas, like grass! Remember to get your hair out of your eyes, do your warm-ups, stay safe, and get ready to have some fun!

1. Cartwheels

If you are just learning cartwheels or are already a professional, these can be super fun to do at home! For a challenge, see how many you can do in a row!

2. Rolls

Raise your hands to the sky, put em by your toes, look to your belly button, and roll! Rolling around the yard can be super fun with friends.

3. Split leaps

Practice your leaps for a chance to impress your friends or parents! Start by lifting your favorite leg in the air in front of you, then jump off your standing leg, and try to make a split in the air, landing on your favorite leg! Then, you can try to run as fast as you can for a huge split leap!

4. Bridge Kick Overs

Bridge kickovers are a hard skill to learn, and often the last skill level 1’s need to advance to level 2 at our gym. Here are some good drills to try at home if you want some extra practice!

Start by pushing up into a bridge, and lifting your favourite leg into the air. See how long you can hold it up! Once you have that down, stand up, lift your favourite leg in the air, and practice jumping! Try to keep your favourite leg up! Next, put them together! Push into a bridge, lift your favourite leg up, and hop with your bottom leg!
