About
While it reigns as the most common dance element on beam, the switch split is a little too simple for counting purposes on floor. It nonetheless remains rather popular among gymnasts even at the highest level because it can be used as the first, easier skill in completing the “passage of dance elements” series before moving on to a more complex leap of higher value a few strides later.

It’s easy to run out of, that’s what the switch split has going for it on floor.
