My daughter is working on full turns on beam. According to what she told me, her foot barely moves when turning. When she uses chalk, it doesn't help too much and makes her feet hurt from the friction. The chalk also melts off after doing only a couple of turns. Does anyone have suggestions? She has her first meet next month so is rushing to get this skill.

My daughter has this problem! She uses Carpe hand and foot deo every day on the way to practice - and then bathes in chalk. It’s made it a bit easier, unless beam is the very last event, in which case she’s going to fly off. She had an issue for months where she couldn’t turn all the way because her feet would get stuck, or she’d over turn with force.
