In the front swing, the gymnast turns their hips in front of the base bar and directs their feet over it. The swing should be in a diagonal over the dismounting bar. At the same time, the body should transfer onto the single bar as well. When the body reaches over the bar, the gymnast should remain on one arm laterally. At the highest point of the front swing (which should be over the horizontal), the body should be over the single bar, on one arm. The twisting motion over the holding arm continues with another half turn before landing. By the landing, the gymnast should have completed a half turn.
The gymnast should hold the elastic around the pole with their feet facing forwards. They should turn their upper body to the side and grab each end of the elastic with their arms. The gymnast should pull upwards and away with their arm to simulate the shoulder extension present during the skill. The arm should remain tight and the body straight throughout the entire exercise.
In the front swing, the gymnast turns ¼ around the bar and when their body passes over the bar, they should sit on it. Then bounce and dismount with another ¼ turn.
