Chest Stand Mounts

Balance beam

Skill type

Known as
Chest stand
Cartwheel chest stand

We don’t see much of the chest stand mounts in modern gymnastics, mostly because “why would I want to stand on my chest when I can stand on my hands, or my feet even?” It’s one of the worst places to stand. It’s fundamentally a little bent, a little sloppy, a little “were you trying to do a press handstand but then broke?” But at least it’s not common and requires a little effort.


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
