The Giant swing rearways forward ( Russian, Italian) can be done from an adler, or from some turn, for example, Higgins. The giant is performed in L-grip. From handstand the body is completely straight, the head is insight. From a hang, the gymnast kicks back with the feet, and the body is slightly arched. Around horizontal, the body starts piking until it reaches the higher vertical. At this point the legs raise and the skill finishes in a handstand. The gymnast should emphasize on the flat bail in the first part and on the proper technique of piking. They should also emphasize on extending to handstand in the second part of the skill. In order to do this skill, the gymnast should have flexible shoulders which can hold support in L-grip. The hands during the execution should as close as possible.
Perform this drill with a stick. A variation of this drill might be if the coach pushes down on the stick. Gradually shorten the distance between the hands.
The gymnast can jump from a panel mat or a mini trampoline. Begin this drill with a spotter. Jump in a pike position. When the upper body reaches vertical, raise the legs up to vertical as well. Land flat on a mat.
The gymnast should grab a stick behind their back in under grip. They should then raise the stick and lean forward until they switch into L-grip. They should repeat this exercise several times and gradually shorten the distance between the hands.
Perform the drill with a spotter. On the low bar in under grip, the gymnast starts the drill in a Manna position. The coach raises the gymnast to an L-grip handstand.
The coach holds the gymnast with one hand on the chest, and the other hand on the lower back. The gymnast holds a handstand rearways in order to repeatedly pike and raise the legs.
Have the gymnast perform a front swing with an early tap. In the front swing the gymnast should push back on the bar and arch their body from their shoulders and hips. Return back with a regular back swing or with a hecht swing.
The easiest and fastest way to improve the Russian giant is to perform them with straps. This drill can be made with a spotter in the beginning.
