    WAG Back handspring (platinum + diamond)

    Is a back handspring necessary for platinum/diamond level (mainly on floor, but also beam/vault)? I've been doing round off back tucks and always have trouble generating power from back handsprings... but one of my floor coaches told me that back handspring is very necessary for higher level...

    MAG Best way to fix crooked back handspring?

    Hey, what exercises would you recommend for a sideways jumped back handspring? It's probably the fear leading to not being able to jump straight and with both legs together. I've read about tying the shoelaces together to keep the legs together but not sure if it's the right thing to do here...

    WAG Are our roundoff back handspring entries being scored?

    As a gymnast I actually have no idea; as A skills, do they count toward the number of A skills. Because once you start to optionals you start counting your A skills and B skills, etc, so do they count? And are they scored and deducted? Curious and hoping I have enough A skills!
