    erm, I don't know how this became a thread, I meant it for the macrumors pic thread. The videos aren't exciting or impressive enough to be in their own thread :(.

    "Nothing was ever achieved without enthusiasm" - my namesake, Ralph Waldo Emerson.

    I don't know how! You have to take things one step at a time. Start with a front roll. Hell, start with a jump. Just jump up and land on your feet, nothing fancy. Perfect that, then move on :).

    Maybe I should have included a warning - "Do not attempt at home" ;).

    Thank you! They are from H&M :D.

    Thank you, but I'm not! I've lost a lot of muscle weight since moving from New York to Austin, mostly in my legs. I've also stopped doing acrobatics, so those were the first flips I had done in a long time, which is why I couldn't land a frickin' easy as pie backflip. ;)

    Do I? :) I think it's pretty slow compared to most acrobatics you see on TV etc. Thank you though!

    Thank you! I was a diver for 5 years, competitive on a prenational team for 3 of those years, but that was from the ages of 8 to 13, so that was ages ago. I've always been infatuated with flipping and tumbling. It's been a hobby of mine. If I was aiming to impress y'all, I'd be on a trampoline :D. Trampolining was introduced into the olympics at the height of my diving career (can you call it that?), and I seriously considered quitting diving to pursue trampolining. I can do crazy things on a good trampoline :D.

    hah :D.

    :eek: a MR gold medal would be an honor ;).

    I haven't done that in years...you make me want to do it again.

    At this point, though, I'm so out of practice I would break my neck! :(

    Nice job, by the way!

    That was cool!

    And timely considering yesterday I saw this video.

    Though he is better than you, I like watching yours cause you post here, and are a "normal human."

    i was going to say the same thing! Anyway...cool videos. I use to take gymnastics when i was 5ish but didn't get much further than very basic stuff. I wasn't very ambitious about it :)

    I'm missing two very important things to do so :). 1) A Trampoline and 2) a video camera! :D.

    I broke both of them, unfortunately. I broke my trampoline by bouncing too high and tearing right through the center of it, and I broke my camera just two days ago by dropping it :(.

    If you broke them both at the same time I would be scared / worried.

    I should take some video of me riding my Dirtbike, and crashing.. I have done some similar tumbles roles and handsprings while crashing. Fortunately I have not been seriously hurt yet, with the exception of breaking 3 bones in my foot :( .
