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.
