    Standing layout is a lot harder than standing back tuck. You should master the standing back tuck and then the standing back pike before attempting to practice this on floor. The one leg step out landing leaves you particularly vulnerable to ankle or foot injuries from landing short.

    You said you have 2 years until you need to worry about it, so why not work up to it slowly with drills. Ask your coach, that is what they are there for, I am sure he/she will have some ideas for you.
