This tumble track drill is another possible introductory approach to some of the reverse hecht technical actions.  The gymnast’s goal is to fly back toward the resi-mat at the same time that her body stands up and aims to create forward rotation.  As the athletes improve their drill understanding they can focus on details such as establishing visual contact and placing their hands on the edge of the tumble track.  Since a great reverse hecht must show a whole hips and body turn over beyond the pancake position, it is wise to combine this drill and the incline mat drill with some other drills that emphasize other reverse hecht actions.
