Why is friction important to a gymnast working on a set of a parallel bars?

Friction is important for a gymnast in two ways. A gymnast's hold on the bars in not possible without sufficient friction between the hands and the bars. At the same time it is desired to decrease friction on the skin to keep hands from developing painful blisters and rips. Grips are used as a solution. Grip provides sufficient friction between its surface and the bar and reduces effect of friction on the hands. (MZJ)

What is the best way to trim back honeysuckle bushes in Las Vegas if you planted 2 last spring and their growth has been great but they are taking over the yard?

I have honeysuckle growing over the entrance to an old cellar, and it grows rapidly every year. After it blooms, I cut it back to the desired point and it grows back every year. I use electric hedge trimmers. I am not sure what you mean about bushes. Mine are more of a vine, but are a rather old and large group that resembles a bush.

How do you do a triple back handspring?

Doing a triple back hand spring is very easy when you get the hang of it. All you have to do is go to gymnstics and practice for a period of time. When you are ready you go to the park and you start off running then you do a round off back hand spring 3 times and there you are. That's all it takes if you practice.

How do you do a handstand?

A handstand is a seemingly simple skill that takes a long time to master. The best way to learn how to do a handstand is to first build your arm and core strength up. You can do this a number of ways. For arms I would suggest push ups and plank holds. For core, I would suggest hollow body holds and crunches. Once your strength is where it needs to be to hold yourself up, you will be ready to try a handstand against a wall. Start in a squatted position almost against the wall. Then walk your feet up (with stomach facing wall) until you reach a handstand position and hold it as long as you can. Once you have this down and can hold it for more than 30 seconds, you are ready to try a real handstand! At the beginning, try some lever hops. These are done by lifting your back leg as you lower your hands and then performing a small "hop" with your other foot when your hands touch the floor, so that for a short moment you are only on your hands. Don't worry about bringing your feet together on a lever hop. These are just used to get the feeling of all of your weight being on your hands. Once you have those down, try to bring your feet a little closer together each time until they are all the way together in your handstand. After that, work on fixing the form of your handstand by getting your shoulders directly over your hands and pushing your feet up towards to ceiling.

How can you do gymnastics at home?

By sitting in front of the TV doing splits within the center. My old gym coach told me that. And doing bridges and watching TV upside down, I do the same thing.

small you can also do gymnastics inside like handstands on your bedroom wall,

watch tv while doing a split on the sofa, a bridge on your sofa and pretend your

walking the beam when your on the edge of your front/back porch.

Which is harder a backflip or a wall flip?

It depends. If you are on a trampoline obviously you can't do a wall flip! But back flips are easiest on trampolines! If you are doing a back flip on the ground it is much harder. If you are doing a back flip of a house or shed, it is easier than on ground but harder than doing one on a trampoline. So it all depends on the back flip. But you should try and see, while someone spots you if you don't know how, which bac kflip you would like do. And try to learn how to do a wall flip, if you haven't already, and try it. Then do all the back flips, and do a wall flip with each one.
