Straddle Back with Somersault

<h3>Straddle Back with Somersault</h3>

This is a skill that is not yet in the USA Gymnastics or FIG Code of Points. It is a straddle back with an extra front somersault.

In spite of what the video title says, it is not a “double straddle back.” It is a skill with a single rotation. A normal straddle back goes from upright to an inverted handstand which is half of a somersault rotation. This skill adds another half a rotation making a complete but single somersault rotation ready to go into a glide kip.
