Drills for Fronthip circle.
  • The gymnast should fall forward with a tight body leaning well forward to initiate momentum.
  • As the gymnast moves to excecute the skill they should lean forward agressively and reach around the bar to get their hands on top of the bar.
  • Stack folded panel mats under the bar. Have the gymnast sit on the mats and lean forward to support on the bar. This helps develop the feel for the last portion of the front hip circle.
