You go into a back bridge then kick one of your legs back then the other one. To perform a back walkover, you should stand with both arms straight and up right. Your favorite foot ( I am a righty so I will use my right foot while explaining) in front of you with your leg extended, straight and toes pointed. As you reach backwards for the floor (as if you were attempting a back bend) you will pull your right leg over with you as you are reaching backward for the floor. Your legs will stay separated the entire time in as big of a split as you can make them. As your foot are approaching the ground you will land with your right leg first (straight and toes pointed) and arms should still be on your ears (or straight). Before planting your left leg on the ground you should show a "tee" position with your body. Because you are bent over at a 90 degree angle your right leg being straight and on the ground with your left leg still in the air directly behind you and your arms on your ears, it will look like the letter "T". Then you will plant your left leg on the on the ground into a lunge position.

How do you learn a back walkover?

Before you learn a back walkover you should learn a bridge. A bridge is where you stand legs apart and lean back into a bridge position you can do it with legs apart if you are doing it from standing. Then you need to work on kicking over if you can get someone to spot you if you are an adult then do the best you can. Anyway once you get good at a bridge kick over. Try doing it with your leg pointed in front of you. Try to get a perfect split in the air! After this put your leg in the air and go back into a back walkover!!!

How can you do a back walkover?

To do a back walkover, you need to learn the art of doing a backbend. After you learn the backbend, You're ready. First, point one toe forward, hands up straight and shoulders stretched. Next, bend back like you do in a backbend, looking at your fingers. Then, when your in your backbend position with one foot up in the air, push that leg backwards and lift the other leg so your legs are in a split above your head, and finally get your legs over and back into a standing position. You need to work on handstands so your hands can control your weight, and if you have a problem, get a spotter. And that is how you do a back walkover.

Which is easier a front walkover or a front limber?

I personally think the front limber is easier - but other people may think differently. To do a front limber you just do a handstand, fall into a bridge and get up using your abs. For a front walkover you have to land with one foot in the air and land with your dominant foot in front and your hands up. I can do a front limber fluently, but have yet to do a front walkover :( You really need strong legs and abs for a front walkover, as well as good back flexibilty and strong shoulders for both.

What stretches do you need to do to be flexible enough for a walkover?

You don't necessarily need to be flexible for a walkover. For a front walkover you want to have a solid handstand bridge come up and good stomach muscles. For a balk walkover you want to have a good handstand bride kick over and flexible shoulders. It would help if you had one of your splits to make it look nicer:)
