About
When connected to a back handspring, the layout stepout is considered the most basic, safest way of fulfilling the acrobatic series requirement on beam without plummeting directly into a pit of lava.

As such, it has become a staple of the majority of elite balance beam routines. Its popularity waned somewhat following the removal of the front aerial + back handspring + layout stepout bonus for 0.2 CV, but it remains nearly as omnipresent now through the reemergence of the layout stepout + layout stepout series, recalling the three-layout series of the 1990s.
