One dad has had a rude awakening to just how hard gymnastics is – after he tried to emulate some of his daughter’s routine for fun.

The doting father, who like many others ferries his daughter to and from gymnastics every week, decided he would give some of her routines a try – with hilarious results.

Ash Mills tries to emulate his 9-year-old’s flips, twirls and stands – although he fails to do them quite as elegantly as his daughter.

The 41-year-old says despite some of his falls looking pretty dicey, he was only hurt once during the routines.
