How to Do a Cartwheel

How to Do a Cartwheel

by @ How to of the Day

The cartwheel is a basic gymnastics skill that will strengthen your upper body and help you work your way up to more advanced moves. There are two basic types: the front-to-back and the side-to-side cartwheel. With the side-to-side cartwheel, you'll start and end in the same direction. Performing the front-to-back cartwheel will land you facing the opposite direction in which you began. The front-to-back is the most common type of cartwheel. To learn either type you’ll need to find a safe environment in which you can practice placing your hands and feet in a way that’ll propel you forward and upside down.
