Back hand spring questions?

Okay so I have been doing my b.handspring all season but now my coach finds that she wants me to perfect it.

I have slightly bent arms when I do them and she says I need to keep them straight...Well I try it and I do something bad to my left elbow!:(

She also says I'm going too slow. I speed it up and its sloppy! :mad:

Well as of right I a bent arm slow mo clean cut back handspring.

What is up with this?! Is it really so bad?!



As for your elbow, I would reccomend more bent arm strength. Stuff like pullups and pushups and handstand pushups besides a solid handstand.
