Academic biomechanical analysis is often of limited value. I’d much rather listen to an elite coach who knows the most important conditioning and drills. Not every variable.
The best reason to check out the article is to watch a video of an amazing Handspring Double Front used as a model: Vaulting Mechanics – Dr. Spiros Prassas – Associate Professor, Department of Health and Exercise Science, Colorado State Unversity
