    First of all, strengthen your legs. In order to do a perfect leap, you have to be able to push of one leg into the air. Try doing jumps first, and rocking back and forth from one foot to another until you can do a middle size one without a running start. Then try from three steps only. Lift your back foot in the air immediately after the front one, and then land with a bent knee. Now back bends, first try to do a bridge. Then see how far you can bend backwards before falling. (Do this in front of a bed first.) Also, stretch your wrists out before doing it, or else they will get tierd from the pressure. Hope you get better!
