How to do a Cartwheel by Isabella

Have you always wanted to do a cartwheel?

Did you know that everyone has a hard time doing a cartwheel in the beginning?

Here are the steps that I follow when doing a cartwheel. (Remember, to keep practicing. You can do it! )

Begin with a warmup.

Now you are ready to do a cartwheel!

The Cartwheel

First, stand up straight, feet together and hands by your sides. Then, step forward on one leg into airplane position while lifting your back leg. Stomp your back foot while lifting your front foot into the air.

After that, stomp your front foot forward while leaning into a lunge position with arms straight up above your head.

Finally, lean towards your most comfortable side and kick your legs up and over.

You did a CARTWHEEL!!

Air Tip: Bend your knees slightly like you are riding a bike (even one with training wheels.) Only bend your knees until you can straighten your legs.

Remember to use the same leg as the side you’re most comfortable with,

Most Important: No-one gets it on their first try. Keep trying if you don’t get it on your first time. Try to keep practicing.
