Introduction: How to Land a Backbend

Go from standing to a backbend it minutes. But remember, practice makes perfect.

By the way, I am not a trained gymnast

Step 1: Stretch

Roll you wrists. Stretch your legs and your back. You can also practice on an exercise ball.

Step 2: Practice.

Put your hands in a triangle position. Then lean back, don't be scared. Straighten your arms and lock them in place so you don't fall then just lean back more until your hands are on the floor. If you don't get it the first time keep trying I didn't get down my first time, I fell a lot

    you should really be careful when attempting this, if you do not have the right muscle structure or vertebrae flexibility, you are in danger of damaging your spine. Never do this unsupervised.
