One of the primary goals of Intermediate tumbling is to master the round-off back handspring. The round-off back handspring tuck is refined with a focus on developing a strong rebound. Conditioning emphasis is placed on shoulder flexibility, back flexibility, and leg strength, all needed for Advanced Tumbling.
