My opinion of the hand placement on beam.

Backsprings...hands should be placed one behind the other but am not sure if the feet should correspond with hands or be opposite or together.

Cartwheels/Roundoffs...hands should be in a "T" position.

Any opinions on this from coaches is apprecaited.

Thanks

For backhandsprings--I recommend placing the hands with the wrist/bottom of palm/hand against the thumb and index finger of the other hand--hard to explain in words without actually showing.

For cartwheel or roundoff, I recommend T shape.
