The back tuck-open salto dismount begins as does any other forward support swing. In this case, the swing begins in the handstand. The bars are loaded by the force of the downswing. As the swing passes through the bottom, the hips should open and the legs should trail slightly as the chest leads through the vertical bottom position. Remaining open through the bottom of the swing will enable a strong forward kick and lift as the body swings through the extended front swing position above horizontal. From here, the body swings upward and the radius of rotation is shortened through bending the knees. The body continues to swing upward and accelerates due to the shortening of the radius by the tucking action. The release of the bars should be triggered by the response of the bars bending. Optimally, this will coincide with the shoulders reaching maximum extension, providing a distinct lift or rise from the bars upon release. The body should extend from the tuck to full stretch at or before horizontal in preparation for the landing.
Good posture at the bottom of the swing;
Don’t kick too early;
Execute the fully extended forward swing prior to tucking the legs to accelerate the rotation;
Fully extend the body at horizontal prior to landing;
The swing on parallel bars is divided into front and back sections. During the forward portion of the swing, the gymnast should ensure that their body is not piked. As the body approaches the bottom of the swing the gymnast should maintain a slightly arched position from their chest. At this point the gymnast should kick their heels behind them, creating a slight arch in their body. Correct execution of the swing technique at the bottom generates a powerful forward and upward motion. As the gymnast’s swing gets higher and they begin to reach handstand, their body should become straight.
Mount the mats at the height of the parallel bars. During the front swing, the gymnast should land on the mats. You can add a cheese mat on the top.
With one hand the coach should hold the gymnast from their upper back. With the other hand, the coach should help push their power back and upward. They should help the gymnast to flip as well as redirecting them away from the rails.
