About
The back 2.5 is a favorite D skill in modern gymnastics, especially for—but not limited to—those who would rather never have to wrench around another double salto in their entire lives because guhhh. The opportunity it provides to connect a front layout for an extra tenth has rendered it irresistible, particularly back in the connection-pass era when routines had to include a pass with two saltos.

Value
