Gymnasts that already know how to perform back handsprings to two feet can practice rebounding them on a low beam and then learn to connect the handspring with a basic back tuck dismount to a pit. From there they can follow the general beam learning progression and eventually execute the combination on a regular height beam. Since one of the most common mistakes for these dismounts is to hold back on the rebounding power, it may help the gymnast to train some rebounds separately to prepare the dismount take off placement and get an initial feeling for the rebound.
