    Front hip circle help

    Hey everyone new to the site. I was wondering if anyone has any tips for front hip circles. I am a self taught gymnast, and have a homemade pull up bar at home. I am trying to learn a front hip circle and I feel like I’m close, but I can’t keep my hips on the bar. I think it could be that I’m...

    WAG Level 3 Front Hip Circle Deductions...

    Hi there, I'm wondering if it's "better" to compete a front hip circle with bent arms or use the spot in an attempted (but probably failed) front hip circle with straight arms. My daughter can reliably complete a front hip circle with bent arms and equally reliably fail to complete a front hip...

    For Parents Level for Front Hip circle

    DD's friend competes in L3 and has her front hip circle. DD and her friend have been practicing together for the last few days since we have been iced in on DD's bars. My DD is not at the same gym and is doing the bronze bar routine. She ends up doing a chin up at the end. What level is this...

    Dd (6) is competing level 2 and training level 3. She is overall doing well but she is having a hard time with bars, especially with the mill circle, front hip circle, and shoot through. I know these skills are difficult for many girls, but I can't help but think that part of why she is...

    For Parents Front hip circle help...again

    My daughter is really struggling with her front hip circle. I know it's all about timing. She has done bar clinics, private lessons, and regular practice working on them. She seems so close, but ,keeps dropping her hips away from the bar. We tied her to the bar today (like a strap bar, right...

    Front Hip Circle, Bent Legs

    So I recently got my front hip circle, but my legs and arms are bent. I try to tell myself to keep my legs straight throughout the skill but for some reason they always bend or I just flop off the bar and don't make it all the way around. Does anyone have any tips or drills?? Thanks!

    For Parents Finally Front Hip Circle!!!

    So excited I just had to share with people who would understand... DD (age 6, level 3) finally got that elusive FHC! I had heard horror stories about the mill circle but DD managed to that skill in about 3 weeks. The stories I heard about the FHC didn't seem nearly as bad so I figured she'd pick...

    For Parents Front Hip Circle

    My DD is struggling with her front hip circle. She was on bars last at her team practice on Thurs., and all the other girls came running out because they were done. She wasn't with them, so I looked over there, and she had gotten back up there to try it a few more times. Her bars coach asked...

    DD (7yo) L4 is going to have her first meet in a couple of weeks. The only skill she does not have is her front hip circle on bars! Several girls on her team don't have it completely yet, so I tell her no worries! But she cries a lot about it after practice because she's afraid she won't be...

    For Parents DD got ro bhs and front hip circle in same week

    Is there something magic about turning 6? All of a sudden she is learning skill after skill after being pretty stagnant for about 6 months. She's gone from not even being able to do even a bad bhs on trampoline to doing a really good looking ro bhs on the regular floor in a month. The progress...

    front hip circle technique

    My dd is competing level 4 this year. She can complete her front hip circle almost every time, but it is not "pretty". She can not do it with straight arms and most of the time ends up with the bar high up on her chest at the completion, making it difficult to connect to a cast. Her coach has...

    Front Hip Circle in Grips?

    Hello! I got grips a couple weeks ago (maybe 4? but I'm only in the gym 1 maybe 2 days a week) For the first bit I simply swung on the highbar doing tap swings and such in them to get used to them and to wear them in. Now to the actual question: When you wear dowel grips (I have...

    Why a front hip circle?

    Ok, well i was thinking about it the other day and can't figure out WHY there is a front hip circle in American routines due to the progressions surely the aim of a learning the kip (in part) is to be able to get a decent cast out of it and i am no coach so i am probably entirely wrong but i was...
