Handstand Full Pirouette Floor

Handstand Full Pirouette

The pirouette starts before the handstand. Transfer the body onto the desired arm and initiate the ¼ turn. Place the free hand on the floor in a fully extended handstand and smoothly transfer the body weight from one arm onto another hand. Then perform another ¼ turn. When concluding either of the half turns, repeat another identical half turn in the same two steps. During the hops and turnarounds, the arms and the body should be completely straight. A correct transition of the body from one arm to another is critical for the proper execution of the skill. The angle of the shoulders is open. Buttocks are squeezed. For a correct hop from one hand to another, push down on the floor extending the shoulders and push with the hands until fingers.

The gymnast begins the drill in a standing position in front of the wall (and obviously the minibar is close to the wall too). The scope is to learn how to finish the turn before and in the handstand. It is positive even if the gymnast finishes before the handstand because when they perform the pirouette from front giant there is going to be enough speed to reach the handstand and continue with a back giant.
