Roundoff Variations

 


Hi coach Wayne,
I was just reading the little excerpts on lunge and roundoffs.

Could you better explain the different roundoffs for me?
Thanks.


A round-off with a HORIZONTAL rebound is used to enter a back-handspring or a similar skill. There is little vertical movement and maximum backwards motion..

A round-off with a VERTICAL rebound is used to enter a flip or similar skill that requires a great deal of HEIGHT but little backwards motion.
