Gymnasts starting to learn back handsprings can benefit from feeling the lean back action in a simpler way. Also getting familiar with hollow chest to open chest and shoulders and the legs push to open hips on a single tight arch body unit. This drill helps the athletes to train the lean back action several times in a row with a coach’s assistance. In this second variation the gymnast continues the lean back action with the legs push while opening her body to a tight arch position. / Before adding the jump back to the resi the gymnast may practice simpler lean backs and arches without jumps or arms swing then they can add the legs jump to a back flying phase to the resi and finally add the arms swings to train all the motions.
