Front Layout Drill Floor


From the snap down phase of the back handspring (or whip back salto or round off) the body should contact the floor in a tight body, slightly hollow position, the arms should reach dynamically overhead with the chest and shoulders open, the head in a neutral position and the body stretched vertically to a full extension. The gymnast should then lift the hips and legs forcefully upward with no backward lean. The body remains stretched as the rotation continues toward the vertical turn over. As the turnover action reaches its peak the chest continues to lift, adding to the rotation. The body remains tight and stretched as the gymnast prepares for landing.

Back Layout, Land Side in Straddle

The first part of the skill should be performed as a back layout. As the gymnast approaches the landing, at around last quarter of the flip, the gymnast should open their legs widely in the sagittal axis, and slightly turn in a quarter. The landing is lateral in a straddle.

Side in the Pit

When the gymnast is confident enough, the execution of the entire side flip should be moved into the pit. At first, it is recommended for the gymnast to land on the foam blocks. Then later they can move onto a mat in the foam pit. The last step is to perform the skill onto higher mats at the level of the floor.
