During the upward bounce, the arms should be raised aggressively above the shoulders with an open chest and shoulders. The hips should be extended, the body straight, with a slight arch. The gymnast should jump strong, pushing on the floor until he/she is on their tippy-toes. During the flight, the knees should lift and bend towards the belly, with a pike from the hips. The head should be in a neutral position. Raising the hips helps to accelerate the backward rotation. During the flip, the arms should be executing a back circle, the gymnast should then grab their legs. Prior to the landing (around horizontal), the body should open into a stretched position.
