Jump to Handstand

Uneven Bars

Skill type

Known as
Jump to handstand
Handstand mount

I’d classify the jump to handstand as one of the “we’re not reaching for the stars here” mounts. You could do this one. It’s not asking for a lot. We’re not demanding Arabians. But of course, at a B value, there is exactly no encouragement to do so. For those who struggle with bent-elbow, muscle-kip deductions, though, this wouldn’t be a bad idea. Just get rid of that kip part and start the routine. Too hard? Too much trouble?
