The tuck open double flyaway is a continuation of the evolving tapping and lifting actions described in the layout flyaway section while adding the initiation of the rotation to a double salto. The giant swings leading to the dismount should encourage an increasingly powerful tapping action to bend the bar downward significantly in the hanging phase. A sharp kicking action through the vertical release point on the upward swing should occur as the bar rebounds upward. With correct timing of these actions, an accelerated rotation and vertical lift allows the gymnast to open quickly to a straight position at the peak of the double flyaway. The gymnast may perform the tuck with their hands on or off their knees. Opening to a straight position will stop the rotation of the flip and allow the gymnast to prepare for a controlled landing on the descent. The double layout flyaway utilizes the same lead-ups described above. On release, the body shape is hollow and the shoulders stay down with the head neutral. As the body rotates the first ¼ - ½ of the flip, the athlete has the option to maintain a hollow position or stretch to a tight arch for the remaining rotations to complete the skill and prepare for landing.
