Snap Down Back Handspring Spot

Once the gymnast has a fair snap down from folding mats, they can start practicing back handsprings with a spot.  This is a good introduction to connecting a handspring from the hands-to-feet flying phase and is very helpful as an initial preparation for roundoff back handsprings.  The spotting is similar to the one for roundoff back handsprings.  If on the left of the athlete during the way down, the right hand moves to the lower back, and the left follows moving to the left hamstring.
