On my bucket list is being able to do a standing back tuck.
I am a gymnast and can do a lot of impressive things.
A standing tuck has always been a goal of mine that just recently I have worked on. The issue is that I have to be the right temperature when attempted such a skill. If my feet get sweaty, I can’t make myself go over. My feet slip on the take off and then I completely open out of my tuck. I don’t want to get in the bad habit of that too. Unfortunately I don’t have a work out space with air conditioning. If I had a gym with quality cooling, I could tuck anytime I wanted. I would first warm up, do some practice jumps and then crank the AC. I could then just tuck until my muscles got tired. There would be no slick feet, sweaty legs or sweat dripping down my body. But, I am not lucky enough to have AC and a large enough space. The only place I can do my standing tuck is outside. I drag a folding mat in my carport and do them. I wake up as early as I can stand it to beat the heat. At 7am it is still around 85 degrees though. I know I have around 30 minutes before I will not be able to do them anymore. This makes me rush my warm up and get nervous. At this rate I am never going to achieve my bucket list item.
