    To help you through your learning process, we have 5 videos for you:

    In the first, you'll learn the technique for the skill. From the placements in the swings to the actions that create the half-turn, your trainer will go into precise detail. We'll also zoom in on the return to support during the rotation. This is of course one of the most difficult phases of the skill.

    The second video brings you the prerequisites. Learn the skills to master and the criteria to look for in your gymnasts to be able to work on the half-turn.

    The third video takes a look at how to teach the skill, with a series of exercises formulated for this purpose. Discover the first exercises to give your youngest gymnasts. Then the exercises that will lead up to having a competition-ready skill.

    The fourth video brings you specific physical preparation. In it, you will find a set of strength exercises. Integrate them into your training circuit and they will be effective at activating the reference points and sensations to look for in a variety of settings.

    To conclude this training, the last video will deal with spotting technique. You'll have the opportunity to learn more about the coach's positioning and the actions needed.

    Enjoy the training!

    A tip from us: This study of the swing half-turn is the entry point into the world of back swings with a longitudinal rotation. Over time you'll see swing half-turn to handstand, blind turns, and others.
