Abstract

Giant swings, routinely performed by gymnasts on the high bar, rings and uneven bars, have been the subject of several investigations (Arampatzis & BrOggemann, 1998; Prassas, Papadopoulos & Krug, 1998; Yeadon & Brewin, 2003). They have not been studied, however, on the parallel bars, where they have been introduced only recently. The purpose of this study was to investigate the kinematics of giant swings on the parallel bars.
