Bob Sanders Posted August 28, 2009 Share Posted August 28, 2009 Hi, ok, first when you kick off does it matter which leg you kick off with? In a gymnast area term does it have to be left leg? Because I am right leg dominant and I can kick of easier on the right leg. It just feels too awkward with my left leg and that messes me up; me falling my whole back on the wall then bring the legs up, push against the wall to do so. But will this also cause an imbalance in the calf muscles? Because today I woke with my calf feeling a little stiff from all the handstand work I did yesterday.The other thing I want to ask is there a certain way to kick off to not all over on your back? Right now I am using a wall so that's no biggie. I'd just fall on the wall but every time I kick if I can just right I would sometimes slam on the wall, sometimes slightly some times real hard, like flat out smack on the wall. So I would worry about that so I would try to kick lightly and then I would not make it because I didn't kick hard enough. Is there a way I can fix this problem so I would end up with a kick-off that would end up in me bring my feet together in a controlled manner?
