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

      Just dont think about it you can not break your neck easily doing this I know from experience (ie neckplanting on hard ground) you can just take a second shake it off and try again

      It’s primarily fear about 80% however technique comes from experience and control which is easy to acquire when you trampoline a lot

      Focus on jumping up rather than back, then when you master the hight work on the rotation (rotating your arms as well, will help a lot with this)

    A backflip is a very different skill to learn , it took me a very long time to move from the trampoline onto a mattress and finally the floor and that feeling of fear in the back of your head is what everyone gets and it’s unlike anything else

    you got this man i have been watching you since the rubiks cube video and since that you helped me to learn stuff and i have learned how to ride a Unicycle, solve A Rubiks cube and do a kick flip the next thing I want to do this summer is a backflip after watching this video I feel stronger than ever that you can do it and that so can I . You have taught me not to give up and to always succeed I believe you need to look at that your self and nail this backflip

    Hey Mike when you where trying to throw a backflip on the flat ground go higher than trying to throw your movement backwards put a little backwards and more straight up. But keep on trying :)

  • TheWakaWakaFish

    Gradually built mine over a few years with practice off of quarry cliffs and trampolines. Getting rid of the fear is truly the only barrier for the average person

  • Henrik Salvesen
    Henrik Salvesen 8 days ago

    the way i learned it was that i first learned backflip on trampoline, and then jumping lower and lower to the point where i felt comfortable and could do it without jumping. Then do it on the ground. Still waiting for that video mike
    Good luck

    It’s all about the technique and a bit about jumping power. Most people who try this jump backwards instead of upwards, but that’s where you have to go before attempting going far both a backflip.

  • Legend Vlogs

    Hey mike, I can do a backflip on flat ground. You need to start at a gymnastics gym to get to know your jump power. Then you need to get more of a spot to help over come going upside down. It was scary to over come at first but it’s just that mental block holding you from it. Also try air track (you can find at most gyms). Hope this helps. Like to help Mike Boyd see this comment. Thanks!

    Instead of jumping up, you're jumping backwards, which gets you less height. Try jumping straight up off of the mattress. When comfortable, remove the mattress.

    So... you jumped WAYYY back. Exactly not how to do a standing tuck. Jump straight up instead. All about getting height !

  • Jake Muir
    Jake Muir Month ago

    Mike your only problem with the backflip that everyone has is not committing to it. When you are upside down you should be confident. Also try to spot the ground or mattress below you then try to get your feet under you to place them where you are looking. Also when you are jumping you aren’t jumping has high as you should be. You are jump backwards more then you need to be.
    Hope this helps you, all the best 👍👍

    Ryan Smidt Month ago

    what you need to do is get past the mental walls that YOU placed in your mind. Believe it or not a back flip is much more simple than a front flip so once you get past the fear and you learn to properly set then your back flip will be clean.

    BEINDE XD Month ago

    I learned to backflip in 30
    Here’s what happened
    I was at my mates
    And I had to get home by a certain time
    I was about to leave but my friend wouldn’t let me
    Until I learned to back flip
    1 I don’t care about dieing (because I can’t get hurt, I could get punched in the face and it will just feel like a pinch)
    2 i had to learn because I would of been putt up for adoption if I didn’t get home on time (not really but I was in trouble)
    3 I do parkour for a hobby

    funny, I've seen you do a lot of thing that I couldn't even start to attempt yet I finally see you stumble on something I've been able to do as a child. Guess it just shows how much easier it is to learn a skill as a kid when you're still open to new experiences and you have none of the "I might hurt myself" fear that you get as you grow older. I'm sure I could still easily backflip on a trampoline but I don't think I'd ever try doing it on the ground from a standstill like I used to.
    Also, you're kind of hampering yourself by standing on the ground and then trying to backflip onto multiple mattresses that really raise the ground height. You're trying to flip onto higher ground and that is countless times more difficult than just doing it on flat ground or a ball pit that is lower than what you jumped off of.
