Tumbling Mental Blocks can be frustrating. When you have a mental block, just thinking about tumbling can cause your heart to pound, palms to sweat, and stomach to churn. You may have used to look forward to tumbling classes, private lessons, and even open gym training. Now you stress over class and may even have anxieties and panic.
It’s difficult to try to get over a mental block when negative emotions are attached to tumbling. The first thing you can do it to start making tumbling “fun” again.
Crazy thought? Not really. If you learned fun mindless skills, your mind could start thinking that flipping was fun. If it thought flipping was fun, then maybe it could think that tumbling was fun as well.

In this video we go through some basic drills, skills, and flips that can help you bring the fun back to tumbling. Once you start having fun, then you may start to look forward to tumbling classes, private lessons, and even open gym training.
It’s the first step to Breaking Through Your Mental Block.
