Back Handspring Full

Back handspring full

Floor exercise

Skill type
Hand support

Known as
Back handspring full
BHS 1/1

News: The back handspring with full twist does indeed exist in the code of points (though note that unlike the front handspring version, the back handspring version must feature the twist before hand support, with no option to perform the twist after hand support).

Despite existing, it has been rendered pointless by its value and the rules, just a B element and not eligible for CV, so there’s really no advantage or reason to do this skill at all instead of a regular back handspring. Which is, you know, easier.
