How to do a One-Handed Cartwheel in Gymnastics
In this lesson you will learn how to do a one-handed cartwheel in gymnastics. This exercise is a good preparation for the wushu cartwheel without hands. The one-handed cartwheel also helps straightening up slanted cartwheels and cartwheels without hands. If you jump from the left leg, use your left hand. If you jump from the right leg, use your right hand. This exercise doesn't work as well if you jump from the left leg and plant your right hand. You will twist and slant your cartwheel even more. The animation above shows a left, static one-handed cartwheel (static = from a standing position). Of course you can also do a little run-up or jump forward.
