tumbling – “skimming the stone”

For “tempo” tumbling (e.g backward handspring series) we often use the analogy that the tumbler should be like a stone skipping across the lake.

Gerald S George posted an article on that topic adapted from his book Championship Gymnastics.

You can read the article for free via the online version of International Gymnast magazine.
