Gymneo – Dive Roll

For me Dive Roll is a critical SAFETY basic. When something goes wrong, gymnasts need to absorb impact force over time and surface area by rolling out.

The classic example is going over the handle bars when cycling: rolling out is safest, prone fall more dangerous. 

Male gymnasts all do enough dive rolls.

But it’s a neglected basic for some WAG coaches. If you see a competitive gymnast  with too much pike on her Handspring Vault, there’s a good chance she hasn’t perfected Dive Roll.
