Does anyone else here LOVE turns on beam?? I looovvee them!! :D Right now the hardest turn I have is a double and I also have a straight legged 1 and a half. I did a regular 1 and a half turn in Level 7 and was the only one on my team doing one! I've also done a 2 and a half, but I think I tried another one and fell off... but i thought it was really cool and it made me dizzy! I also think it's funny when people think full turns are hard to do (no offense to anyone who thinks they are), but turning just comes so naturally to me! :p

So does anyone else love them just as much?

Turns and switch leaps are the only things that I actually enjoy doing on beam. I'm currently working on a reverse attitude turn into a straddle jump... it's a little harder on beam than on floor!

"Love" is really not the right term...

beam is my favorite event. at one point i worked 1 1/2 turns and turns w/ my leg in different positions. i did behind me and slightly bent, in front straight, and in front of me bent. :D
