Their hilarious videos show Ash Mills trying to pull off parts of his daughter Alex’s gymnastic routines at home.

While 9-year-old Alex completes each jump and twirl with grace and poise, Ash struggles through several practices before almost managing 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.

But 41-year-old Ash, from Australia, claims he was only truly hurt once.

He said: “I was doing a flip on a trampoline and I shot backwards and hit the edge of it. That really hurt. ”
