Ash Mills, 41, published some hilarious videos trying to pull off parts of his nine-year-old daughter Alex’s gymnastic routines at home. While she made each jump and twirl with grace, he struggles through several practices before completing each challenge.
In most videos he spins perilously close to sharp pieces of furniture or the edge of trampolines, and his landings often look extremely painful. However, he claimed he was only truly hurt once.
“I was doing a flip on a trampoline and I shot backwards and hit the edge of it. That really hurt. Otherwise I have been lucky. If I fall I just pick myself up again,” he said.
The gymnastics started three years ago when Alex took up the sport. As a way of encouraging her, Ash began joining her in trying.
