Here we include a few examples of an interesting beam mount with a C value in the international gymnastics federation difficulty ratings. The gymnast must strive to minimize wobbles during the split landing. Watch this final beautiful example of this side jump to split mount.
With a gainer dismount, the gymnast should travel forward and sideways to avoid the beam. To accomplish this during the take-off, this gymnast leans her body away from the vertical in the desired traveling direction. Check a couple of technical motions for the side gainer.
Once a gymnast has mastered a fair layout gainer, they can progress to a gainer full. Gymnasts should start practicing this skill from an elevated surface to a loose foam pit. The gymnast must focus on creating a good rotation during the layout. To create the desired rotation, the gymnast must swing up strongly with the free leg.
Performing side walks on the balance beam is a good drill for beginner and novice gymnasts that want to improve their balance, posture and presentation.
