Mission: In microgravity, astronauts love to perform spectacular somersaults. Here on Earth it’s not so easy, but it certainly is fun! To practice your coordination and strength, you will perform a series of gymnastics moves: the original front roll, the backwards roll and finally the cartwheel.  Film it, or snap a picture, and tag it on social media with #trainlikeanastronaut.

Set-up:  Roll out an exercise mat or use carpet for a soft landing. Practice the original Space Rock-n-roll activity to perfect your front roll. Slowly practice the backwards roll and cartwheel steps, to build up confidence and strength.
