Trampoline can be used to learn basic up to advance tumbling skills before you are physically ready to perform them on the floor. In this video Joy Umenhofer, former USA Gymnastics National Tumbling and Trampoline staff, goes through basic trampoline lead ups for flipping and twisting skills used on both vault and floor. This video was filmed at the 2019 Region 5 High Performance Training Camp at DeVeau’s Gymnastics. Joy uses some cool drills to focus on shape and bounce position before getting into forward and backward flipping tramp drills.
