VAULT

Front Handspring

 

This vault is by far the most important vault for a young gymnast to develop.  As with a Front Handspring on the floor, it requires the body to turn over, with the weight supported briefly on the hands.  From the springboard, the body is kept in a slightly hollow position, and after “blocking” with the shoulders, the body rises up in a slightly arched position.  These positions can be modified for a simple Front Handspring, but are essential for higher-level vaults that the athlete will later encounter.
