Drills for Front toss to support.
  • The common error on this skill is to bend the arms resulting in a forward roll on the bars.
  • Drill: Have the gymnast hold a forward support on floor, slightly arched, shoulders shrugged. Lift the gymnasts feet and toss them up and over the gymnast (of course the gymnast should be briefed). The gymnast should try and land in an extended rear support.
  • A good shrug and pop are essential to making the skill.
  • The gymnast must reach for the bar quickly so that support can be established before the gymnasts full weight is on the bars.
