Full-In

By

Definition: The term full-in means that the gymnast performs a full-twisting double back (two flips backwards) with the twist happening in the first flip.

A full-in can be done in the tucked, piked or layout position. It can be used as a dismount off the bars, beam, rings, parallel bars, or high bar, as a tumbling pass on floor, or as a move on trampoline.

If a gymnast performs the twist on the second flip it is called a full-out, and if the gymnast splits the twist between the two flips it is called a half-in half-out.
Examples:

Shannon Miller performs a tucked full-in in her first tumbling pass

Carly Patterson does a tucked half-in half-out as her first tumbling pass

Dominique Dawes dismounts uneven bars with a full-out
