Hardest Gymnastics Moves


The Top Ten

1 Back Handspring

This, aerials, full out, back walkovers, and back flips are the hardest of all gymnastics moves. Why the HECK is somersault, round off, and cartwheel on this list? I learned to a somersault when I was practically a baby! I'm not even a gymnast, but I can nearly do a front handspring on the trampoline.

These are all probably the easiest moves, They can be hard for some people but the are pretty easy. I only said back handspring because it took me the longest to get!

I vote back handspring because it took me 2 years to get it. Now I work on tucks and layouts.

What the hech is this doing as #1 I got my back handspring before I got my backbend kickover.

2 Front Handspring

So easy, I got it on my first try, and the coaches didn't even tell me how to do it!

This took me a while to get but it is pretty easy

Hard at first, but gets easier to do.

Pretty easy but still hard for me.

3 Chest Stand

Chest stand I think that it is very hard to do and how does anybody be able to stand on their chest just saying not trying to be mean or anything just saying if I am I'm really very sorry


I got it in my first month of trying.

Seriously who voted for this and not a double double

Super hard I have no back flexibility so I just fall straight on my front😂

I have a two year old cousin who has already perfected this trick

Agree. A five year old can do a somersault

5 Elbow Stand

It took me a long time to get this one!

6 Round-Off

Round off is so easy

Round-offs are actually quite easy, it didn't take me very long to master it a few years ago - kaitlynrad11

This is practically the same thing as a cartwheel, so easy!

Easy peasy lemon squeezuy

8 Arabian Flip

It is so hard to learn as you have to be able to have a lot of height and momentum to pull off such a trick like this.

I can't do it but It is one of the hardest

Not even hard

So hard

9 Korbut Flip

R u serious? Back handspring is first and this flipping move is banned because it is so hard and dangerous, duh

She does a backsault form the high bar catches it. Such a hard move that it is banned!

17? And backhandsping is number 1?

10 Handstand

It not one of the hardest but it is hard to hold because you have to shift your weight through your fingers

Handstand is not HARD AT ALL

I can do it but I am back on my feet in 3 seconds

Handstand more like easystand

The Contenders

11 Splits

You have to work on your splits constantly. I remember I could do the splits both ways perfectly, and then I didn't do any gymnastics throughout the whole summer. Now I have to work on the splits all over again

This is easy if you keep practicing. It took me nine months to learn how to do! This takes longer to do than any other gymnastics moves. I can do the splits. And it is also a fun and cool move in dance, gymnastics, and sports. SPLITS!

They are the hardest from this list

I think sprites is not hard because I was doing it for years now

So yeah

My fave moves are side ariel and back handspring. Side Ariel is way easier than it looks!

I have searched up YouTube videos on how to do on e but I still can't

Don't I've broke my foot

14 Back Bend

17 Presshandstand

I am so close to this but its not as hard as it looks, I thought it would be extremely hard

It's hard because it needs much strength and balance for it
