Gymnasts may use a panel mat to train for distance during the first flying phase.  With their toes at the beginning of a panel they perfom back handsprings trying to reach far into a different panel.  Since the gymnasts know the exact place they are begining each turn they can check how much they are flying back from feet to hands.
