Front Layout

Floor exercise

Known as
Front layout
Front lay
Straight front

A beloved staple of direct acrobatic combinations on floor, the front layout generally crops up in one of two situations: either as the opening element preceding a more complex front tumbling skill (i.e., front layout + front 2/1) or as the final element in a sequence following a forward-landing tumbling skill.

Back when the combination-pass requirement existed, the back 2.5 + front layout was a particular favorite, but since the elimination of that requirement (and the shift to award equivalent CV to the connected front tuck), that combination has fallen out of favor, and the front layout along with it.
