You will also need to develop good power in both your legs and your core.Power is defined as the ability to produce the most amount of force in the least amount of time.Leg power is necessary to be good as a flyer in tosses because you will have to use it when working with the bases to explode upward from the toss and maximize your height.Core power is necessary for the tricks that you are performing in the air.Jumps such as toe touches, layouts, and tucks all require adequate levels of core power.
