Can you still do a tumblesault?

I tried one a few months ago. My Son was going tumble crazy so my DH & I bet each other that we could do one. His was good surprisingly. I almost broke my neck & had pain for a week! Never again! LOL! How about you?


BTW, I tried to "spell check" the word tumblesault here on CM & they didn't have it!! WTH? is it an old word? LOL!

  • I can still do cartwheels, walkovers and back hand springs. Somersaults are no problem.

  • Goodness, I'd probably never get up off the floor even if I did manage to do a somersault. I'm curious, but not quite curious enough to try it. Maybe after I lose twenty more pounds, I'll celebrate by doing one.

  • yes, almost 50 and I can. I used to teach and compete in Gymnastics. You made me laugh, I have never heard it referred to as tumblesault.
