BEAM

HS Press  

 This is really two skills, and the opposite of a Press to Handstand.  From a Handstand position, the athlete lowers the legs, passing the feet by the beam, and bending in the hips.  The athlete arrives at a straddled position, with legs horizontal to the floor.  The weight is on the hands throughout this exercise.
