Back 2/1 (Floor Exercise)



Floor exercise

Skill type

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 back double tuck.

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