I need some advice on how to not be scared of my backhandspring on high beam. I have had my bhs on the low beam consistently for a couple of weeks without any fear or failure, i am due to compete this skill next weekend and it's one of my requirements. When i get onto the high beam i feel like i can't jump onto my hands and when i try i get dizzy and scared. As everyone at my gym is all prepping for our comp there is not any opportunities to try it with box set ups. I know i can do the skill its just getting over the fear to do it on the high beam which i need help with.

Hi, That is really a question for your coach. How old are you?
