Learn how to do a gymnastics floor routine in this gymnastics training video from Howcast.

I’m going to walk you guys through a beginner gymnastics floor routine. The floor exercise is a little bit different when you’re talking about men’s and women’s gymnastics. Men do not use any music. It’s only tumbling and one or two non-tumbling skills. They call them non-acrobatic skills.

For women, women combine dance, non-acrobatic skills, acrobatic skills, and choreography into their tumbling, so they have to be good dancers, good tumblers. They have to combine a lot of different things that the men don’t necessarily have to have.

But this today, I’m just going to run you guys through a basic beginner’s floor routine. No matter what level, no matter what age group normally the floor routine will consist of a few things. You’ll have a front tumbling pass, so like a front handspring, a front roll, a front flip, anything forwards.

Then you’ll also have a back tumbling pass, so something like a roundup back handspring, or a roundup back handspring back tuck, back layout, back full. Aside from your front and back tumbling pass, girls will have dance elements and flexibility. So they’ll have leaps. They’ll have turns. Things like that.

So let’s watch Alyssa do her beginner’s floor gymnastics routine. Usually they’ll use music to choreograph the routine, too. At any level the girls use floor, they use music on the floor, and this will be her back tumbling pass, roundup back handspring, rebound, nice stick. Then she’s going to do one of her dance elements, called a turn.

That was a full turn. Now she’s doing her another non-acrobatic skill called a leap and a jump. Nice, and now she’s going to finish with a front skill. Nice, so we saw the front tumbling pass, back tumbling pass, non-acrobatic turns, leaps and jumps and dance, in between all of this. That’s how you put together a beginner’s floor gymnastics routine.

EmmelieHindbaer1 says:

Yeah, I agree, pirouette/turn was not good! And little jump thing didn’t
really fit into it, but I liked it. Btw I am a rhytmic gymnast, and i only
do team gymnastics and not individual floor.:)

Justine R says:

No offence but that was a pretty crappy routine.. There are 4 year olds at
my gym with much harder routines than that one
