No, don't start by doing it on the trampoline. Although it sounds way more safe, you will be to scared starting back on the floor.
Starting positionStart in a standing position with your feet together, your knees together, and your arms by your ears. Put your chin down.
Pushing offSwing your arms down (forward) as you bend your knees, then swing them right back up and back as you push off. This gives you added power.
Pushing backSpring off the floor with a strong push from your legs and feet, bending back into a bridge position in the air.
Arching backLet your legs drive you upward and backward. Point your toes and extend through your ankles. Make sure you keep your head back between your arms while you start to reach for the floor. Start to look for a landing spot on the mat.
Reaching the floorKeep your body arched as your hands touch the floor or the mat, with your legs and lower body still following. Keep your hands either straight forward or turned in slightly. Spread your fingers a little, keep your feet together, and don't let your knees bend.
Coming downSwing your legs and feet over and snap them down firmly toward the floor. Keep your upper body straight.
Finishing positionBend your legs slightly and put your arms straight in front of you.
Locate a reputable gymnastics school and find one that has been recommended to you by other students. Allow them to teach you how to do this. A trained coach is best because they know all the tricks and will show you how to do it right the first time.
Learn how to do a back walkover, which is like a back handspring in slow motion, first.
Add power to your back handspring by getting a running head start and doing a round-off first.
Keep your arms locked to prevent falling on your head.
When first learning, you can practice landing on your stomach on a mat first, instead of swinging your feet back to land upright.
Without the guidance of a professional instructor, attempting a back handspring can result in serious injury , possibly even breaking your neck which often causes paralysis. Don't do back handsprings by yourself until your trainer or coach says you're ready.
Make sure you have a shaper on
Start by learning it on a trampoline. This is very easy, and it helps you learn how to control your momentum. After you've learned the art of controlling yourself and finding your ground, try it on a mat. Make sure you have a spotter the first few tries. Your spotter should be someone you trust (obviously) and someone strong enough to catch you. Keep in mind that this process can take weeks of progressive practice! Do not try all this is one day or you'll hurt yourself.
Try using a back handspring, to use a Hand Spring Machine or you can use Octagon , or Mailbox.
