  • Guys, what tips do you have? Either to over come fear or simply just technique. Interested to hear what you think.

    • Hey Mike!!! My tip for you to overcome the fear is 1. Practice in a pool 2. Try going on a muscle up bar at least 3 feet tall sit on top then grab on the bar then fall backwards 3. Try it again try to curl up more and get more momentum Thanks....

  • the wrong you do is that you make the landing more higher that will give you fear and you will stop it like what you do next time make the landing foam same high as your first place

  • So if u want to learn a backflip i would stay on the same levle all the time... U jump to far back. U should try to jump on the spot. U start with a big matrace and end on the ground. Thats how I learnt the backflip... Good Luck 👍

  • You’re swinging head straight back and cutting your arms. Going straight back will make you do your backflip really low and harder to land and that’s a habit u need to get rid of. When swinging your arms make sure your arms extent all the way to your ears than you can grab your knees to rotate.

  • before you go from ground you want to go from the bed to bed then work your way down you cant go from low to high when your just learning how to do a back flip and hight is key and knowing that you can do it and believe in yourself trust me i know when you get the first one its so exiting but you will never get over the fear you just got to know that your capable of doing it and once your done with the bed you will want to use a mat to the ground or mat to mat that is how you ground it in your mind that your capable of doing it i hope this helped

  • Enough hype and support in the comments yet?? I used to always be able to do front-flips, egg-flips, side-flips, misty-flips, stalls, etc on trampolines, but the one thing I could never bring myself to trying was a back-flip. Always scared me so much. Not to sound all sappy or anything, but your channel, and your whole vibe on everything you do, has always completely inspired me, and made me remember my thoughts as a kid. There's nothing that's impossible. Literally anything, ANYTHING you set your mind to, you can complete. And surpass. It's like... when you think you can't do something, remember success comes in cans, not can'ts. Corny I know, but I've always felt that if any human can accomplish something, than so can you. This Mike Boyd guy always (sometimes painfully) reminds me of this. "You can do anything you set your mind to man." You know the quote.

  • I know this is late but I learned to do a backflip from starting on trampolines like you did and the got some mattresses and did a backflip from the mattress onto hard ground. Then I went to normal foam mats and then just on hard ground. Tips, practise jumping on the spot trying to get as high as you can. Don’t jump back, jump up and then over. Hope you over come your fear soon.

  • I noticed you're tucking too early, and jumping too far back. (Takes energy from jumping up) Always open up fully before the tuck. Throw your arms way up, open up your chest, then tuck. It will feel like you're not going to make it, but you gotta commit. FULL SEND MANN!!! YEAHH, YOU GOT IT

  • Hi mike. I am daniël 15 years old and i am a freerunner and freerun teacher. The biggest mistake you are making is leaning back. If u want to get height in a backflip u need to throw ur chest up not back. Second, don’t bring your chest to your knees but you knees to your chest. Try to be as explosive as possible while doing this. To sum up everything. - throw your chest up not back also throw up your arms while u do this. - bring your knees to your chest, be explosive while u do this -Then tuck and spot your landing. - I do not recommend undertuck because ur not going up as much and you are more likely to throw your chest back instead of up. Also watch the video of plan zero on how to backflip.
