Back Limber

This skill is an opposite to the Front Limber.  The athlete begins with arms overhead, and legs together, and arches back to arrive at a Bridge position.  The weight is shifted from the feet to the hands, and with a slight rocking motion, the feet are pulled up from the floor, and the back is straightened to arrive in a handstand.  To execute a true Back Limber, the gymnast should then lower the feet to the floor in a Piked position, and finally, raise the arms overhead.
