To begin the backhandspring the gymnast leans back off balance while slightly bending the legs and moving the trunk forward with a straight or hollow chest. From this position the gymnast can make a powerful jump backwards. Back handsprings have two important flying phases. From feet to hands then from the hands back to the feet. /Still 1/ Hollow Chest. /Still 2/ Trunk forward with body leaning back off balance. /Still 3/ Long arch first flying phase. /Still 4/ Short and deep hollow second flying phase.
