Swing Parallel Bars

Upperarm Swing

In upper arm support, the gymnast’s arms should be bent around 90 degrees. The technique in the front swing starts at the highest point in the back swing. At this point the gymnast’s body should be in a hollow position. Their body should arch slightly at the very bottom of the swing and perform a snap down. On the way up to the highest point of the front swing, the gymnast should maintain a hollow position. From the top of the front swing, the technique for the backswing begins. The gymnast’s body should be extended until the very bottom. Following this should be a kick from the heels while the body transforms into a slight arch.
