BEAM

 Straddle L Press HS

 

This skill involves tremendous strength, as well as flexibility.  The athlete begins by holding her legs parallel to the ground, straddled, with the weight on the hands.  Then, the hips rotate and lift upward, and the feet move backward, then upward, until they arrive in a Handstand position.
