The backward swing is one of the foundational elements that our gymnasts must acquire if they want to progress on uneven bars.
You need it to be able to learn giants and forward dismounts, but also to be able to safely swing facing the low bar.
Mastering this skill also helps you swing back and forth effectively when using straps. This means that with each swing, gymnasts can generate more and more speed, which makes more difficult elements accessible, whether in the direction of a backward or forward giant.
To help you teach this element, we have a technical analysis for you in which we examine each feature of the movement: the different angles for each action, the body positioning in each phase of the skill, as well as the different types of effort required. All of this information will help you to give clear, relevant instructions to your gymnasts and corrections based on their execution.
In the video on prerequisites, you'll learn how to tell when your gymnasts are ready, both physically and technically, to work on this new swing.
In the final segment of this training course, we'll show you the entire training circuit needed to learn the skill. From the most basic exercises to final execution, each stage is explained in detail.
We hope you enjoy the training.
