Handstand

This may be the most recognizable skill in gymnastics.  A strong handstand is essential for any gymnast to progress.  Be sure that the focus of the head and eyes is on the hands, and that the back is kept straight.  Many gymnasts tend to arch their backs, which results in a weaker position.  The arms and legs should be straight, and the gymnast should think about pushing the feet toward the ceiling.
