Abstract

The basket with half turn to hand stand is performed in competition by male gymnasts on the parallel bars. The turn techniques in performing this maneuver are classified into two types. The early turn technique resembles a cast with half turn to support. The late turn technique looks like a basket to handstand on one rail followed by a half turn backward in a handstand. The former technique can improve the difficulty value by increasing the turn. The purpose of this study was to compare the different turn techniques in performing the basket with half turn to handstand on the parallel bars.
