The gymnast should begin in upper arm support with their arms bent around 90 degrees. The front swing technique begins at the highest point in the back swing in a hollow body position. The body should arch slightly, and snap down through the bottom of the swing. On the way up to the highest point in the front swing, the gymnast should maintain a hollow body. From the top of the front swing, the back swing technique begins. The gymnast’s body should be extended until the very bottom of the swing. Next, the gymnast should kick with their heels and create a slightly arched body position.
In upper arm support, the gymnast’s arms should be bent roughly 90 degrees. They should hold onto the bars tightly, and maintain a straight body.
The starting position for this exercise is in upper arm support. The gymnast should press down on the bars with their arms, moving their body upwards. Next, the gymnast should relax their arm pressure and let their body move downward. For optimal results, perform this drill with multiple sets and high repetitions.
