KINEMATICS TECHNIQUES DIFFERENCES IN SELECTED HORIZONTAL BAR MANEUVERS
Keywords: horizontal bar, kinematics, differences, technique
AbstractPerformance on the horizontal bars largely depends on swings which are fundamental to executing various skills. The kinematics of swings plays an important role in preliminary execution to predetermine the skill performed, thus, swings may differ from one performing skill to another. The purpose of this study was to investigate the technical differences of the swings when the gymnast performs three different skills on the horizontal bars. these are:1) the backward giant swing (BGS); 2) tkatchev (TC); 3) double back somersault dismount (DBSD).
