Cast to Handstand, Straddled

Uneven Bars

Skill type

Known as
Straddle cast
[I have ignored it and am waiting for the skills to start]

The building block of every routine on uneven bars, the cast to handstand is included at the completion of every skill unless that skill is directly connected to another. Almost every routine will begin with a cast to handstand following the mount and will include a couple more cast handstands throughout. The goal of routine composition is to have to include as few cast handstands as possible—both because that means you are connecting a lot of skills for juicy, juicy connection bonus, and because every cast handstand is an opportunity for deduction from the vertical police.
