Here is my progression video from a complete nonbackflipper to a backflipper over the course of 7 days. I started to work on my backflip a while back but wasn't able to get anywhere and decided to call it quits. After letting it sit for a while, I decided to come back and start again. I personally had the most trouble getting over the fear, and the first 2 days I spent just trying to accomplish that. Once the fear was gone, I had a bad habit of whipping my head back and not throwing my hands ALL THE WAY to my ears. It took my a bit to get over that. I landed my first backflip on grass on the third day.
Once the fear is gone, though, the backflip is not very difficult at all. It's all about technique and not overdoing it.
Thanks for watching!
