Just a quick question. My dd is the tallest on in her class, and I was wondering what you could tell me about the height of the low bar. The last gym we went to always set the low bar somewhere close to my dd's height. Is this correct? The new gym sets the low bar so if she is standing right next to it it is at chin level or even a little lower. She seems to be having issues with everything on bars that start on the floor. Glide swings, chin up pullover, and even her dismount for level 4. For the glide swing she is hiting her feet on the back swing, and when she tries to pull them up she looks like she is in a pike. When she does the chin up pullover she can stand with her chin over the bar and sometimes even has to stand back a few feet from the bar to have her chin at the bar in the pull up position with her legsstraight.(It looks really weird). And she doesn't seem to get the full extention on the dismount because she seems to be bending her arms to have room to do her hallow. I would like to ask her coach about it but don't want to look like a mom just wanting to blame something besides my dd.
