Question
Hi, I recently learned how to do a front limber. Now I want to do a front walkover, I can split my legs but I can't get up from one foot. Please help. Thanks.

Answer
Hi Ashliegh,

When you are doing the front limber, try to concentrate on your knees and how they work to help you stand up.  A front walkover is a one-legged front limber.  You need to be pushing out of your shoulders and straightening your knees for a front limber, the same for the front walkover.
