What are the different kind of hurdles for a floor routine start (for cartwheel, roundoff)? I heard there is a Step Hurdle, Power hurdle. Does anyone have a list and their descriptions?

Sorry i don't have a list but I have also heard it being called a "power start" rather than a hurdle..?
As I understand it, which is potentially incorrect, a hurdle happens when you're moving. A power hurdle is from a stationary position. Essentially the difference between a broad jump and a long jump in track.
