About
A staple of direct acrobatic combinations on floor, the front layout will crop up in two general instances, either as the opening element preceding a more difficult front tumbling skill (i.e., front double full or front double tuck) or as the final element following a forward-ending tumbling skill. The back 2.5 to front layout was a particular favorite when a combination pass was a requirement, though it has fallen relatively out of favor since then, and the front layout with it.
