Before making contact with the trampoline bed while you come out of the tuck on your way down, ensure your arms rise again.

To prepare yourself for landing, you have to bring down your arms in such a way that you are ready to place it right behind your seat and extending your feet forward.

4. FRONT DROP

For the front drop, you need to start bouncing with your hands and knees simultaneously. You need to push your hips backwards while bouncing and keep your legs straight as you drop. The best way to be comfortable with your landing is to bring your hands in front of your face for protection.
