About
The most difficult skill that exists on the beam, the back layout with a full twist is so risky and difficult to perform at all, let alone without major landing deductions, that it is typically left exclusively to the rarest of heartbreaking gems. In most cases, it’s probably not a great idea, though the lure of its difficulty is irresistible to some.
