Because Real Men Do Beam

Who says guys can't do beam?

If you're Dom Palange, a coach at UCLA coach Chris Waller's gym, Gym Jam, you occasionally pass the time by learning to throw skills on the balance beam (mostly on the low beam).
Not just a cartwheel, but standing arabians, and back handspring layout step out combinations.

These GIFs show Dom's beam skills from several of his Instagram videos.
