In this drill the gymnast begins with both hands in an eagle grip  and jumps up to a handstand with eagle grip support  afterwards to land flat down while maintaining a fully streched position  and without loosing the grip on the bar.  The drill can also be performed bouncing from a board, but either way, one of the goals is to show a vertically supported handstand without any pike before falling down.  In these examples the male gymnast is moving over a little too quick before showing a fully extended vertical handstand.  For eagle giants male gymnasts tend to keep the head neutral during the handstand support while many female gymnast approach the skill keeping a visual contact with the rail.  Either way is valid as long as the body shows a great extended line during the eagle grip handstand support.
