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.

I have been trying to get it for 3 years and I still can't get it. My mom says it is probably because I am tall because at my talent show, there were a bunch of little kids showing off their roundoff backhandspring and I said they were better than me because of that. And I have watched a bunch of tutorials and none of them helped at all.

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.

2 Front Handspring

Hard at first, but gets easier to do.

Pretty easy but still hard for me.

So hard to get up

Really amazing

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 can't I really close breaking my chest still hurts but not that much

I'm really good at it

4 Somersault
5 Round-Off

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

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

Yes its easy, but no its not the same thing as a cartwheel. -coach alanda

Round off is so easy

6 Elbow Stand

At first I really was not able to get it, but now, it's quite easy!
May God and peace be with you all!

It took me a long time to get this one!

7 Front Walkover

I have to try this but most of these are not hard I'm surprised aerial is not on here

I self taugh myself how to do it without anyone teaching me. It is that easy.

I am only nine and I can do a front walkover

Toke me 2 years to master!

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

I'll never be able to do it

Oh my gosh it is 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

This thing is easy. I tried it once in practice once and landed it

Do you want Final Destination to become reality or something?

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

10 Splits

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!

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

It took me three months to do it and then I lost it

Sooo hard I'm afraid I will pull a hamstring so I'm not gonna try

The Contenders
11 Handstand

Yow know the hand stand took me only 2months to do it but it the hardest move for me.I start gymnastics maybe on 7or8 years old
It is the hard skill

Pretty hard at first, but with some practice and a lot of bandaids for bruises, I got it!

Even thought is basic, it is very hard to master

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

12 Finger Stand

Are you�" mental? I seriously doubt that's even possible.
(Did you catch my Ron Weasley reference up there?! )
May God and peace be with you ALL!

Impossible to do and please don't try it at home

Hard I can barely do it now

What the no one can do that

13 Back Bend

I just a learned one. It took me a week or 2 it can hurt your back but it depends how flexible you are

It is so easy it took me fifteen minutes to get it and I even did it into a chest stand

Once I nearly broke my back doing it

A back bend is so easy!

14 Aerials

I did it once but ever since then, I still haven't done it. I watched tutorials, got help with family members still can't do it!

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

This is easy my gymnastics coach can't evan do it and she can do most things

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

15 Giants
16 Full Layout

This needs no. 1
and a cartwheel is not harder than this

All of these things I can do

17 Double Front Flip

Hard a lot of these my little sister can do, she is 5 years old some of these are basic tricks, like seriously, SOMERSAULT?!

I can do it into the pit

It is pretty hard

I have done one and its not a somersault you do to flips in the air in tuck that's a DOUBLE FRONT TUCK/FLIP

18 Quad Twist

I didn't see this on here when first going through the list! Back handsprings can't be above this like seriously people?

Literally no woman can do this...only a few. How is back handspring 1st! Are you joking

This is so hard back handsprings are easy

19 Kart Wheel

These are super easy
I got them in 10 minutes

What I could do that when I was 2

That is so easy once I got it.

So easy so easy

20 Maltese Cross

Really. Hard but fun always good to have a try

I really think it is almost impossible.😤


21 Ariel On The Beam

I an not even do an Ariel on the tumble track!

I can barely do one on floor

22 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

I am working on It but not that well

23 Back Flip

Really hard and complicated

24 Back Walkover

Not hard at all

I got this when I was in year 3
I think someone has already got this skill before year 3 :(

25 Kip

You just have to work at it a lot.

Easy I am 8 and I can do it
