Moy to upper arm

Basic skill
Drills for Moy to upper arm.
  • Once the gymnast has a decent swing the moy is simply a matter of riding the swing up and throwing the bars back.
  • A lot of gymnasts will try to release the bars early, the throw must occur near the peak of the swing otherwise the skill will travel forward too much, and not high enough for completion.
  • To land the moy in a piked upper arm support the swing must be more aggressive, and a substantial tap must occur on the upwards phase of the swing. Many gymnasts will lift their hips rather than their toes upon release.
