Exercise 1.) Let’s start with the snap down. Start in a handstand (it does not have to be perfect) and snap your feet to the ground by pushing off with your shoulders and using your abs. Your hands should leave the ground before your feet hit. Land with your feet together and lift your chest in order to bring your arms straight up. After you have snapped your feet down, finish by jumping up. Do this about 10 times in a row. It will make your shoulders and your abs stronger. It will also make it easier to finsh your backhanspring.

Exercise 2.) Get a GOOD spotter. Start with your feet together and hands to your side. Have your spotter place their hands in a spotting position (if on your left side – spotter place right hand on mid back and left hand on back of thigh). NOw throw a backhandspring and when you finish step forward and throw another. Do 5 in a row and the spotter will help you out if you get tired. This Exercise will not only make you feel more comfortable about the backhandspring, but will improve your strength in your legs. You will start throwing your backhandsprings a lot easier the next day or 2 after.

    If you’re having trouble staying up in the opening handstand, you may need to work on some upper body strength. Possibly start with some inverted pushups, 45 degrees off wall then work up to 90 degrees off wall. Might also do some weight training. A personal trainer could put you on the right track to working on a good balance of sustained strength vs. burst strength for the snap, and strong core muscles would help with the landing. The Advice in Exercise 2 to get a good spotter should definately be followed. find someone that has the strength to hold you up if you lose your balance or start to approach muscle fatigue and that can help you through the motion.
