Event
Floor exercise

Skill type
Acrobatic

Known as
Back 2/1
Back double full
Back double twist

Note: The full or twist terminology is necessary when referring to these skills since back double on its own may be understood to refer to the double tuck.

About
Too simple for the majority of elite floor routines, the back 2/1 crops up only in routines from the weakest floor workers, those who are far too injured to perform real tumbling passes anymore, or those competing watered-down early-season routines before building back up to their full difficulty for real competitions.
