Improve Your Clear Hip with this Home Workout
I share my favorite exercises that can practiced at home or at the gym to get better at a Clear Hip, either to horizontal or to handstand.
Drills and Progressions for Toe on, toe off.
Straddle Back Drill
I love this setup for emphasizing getting hips up so that you'll know you'll have plenty of time to catch and swing out cleanly. Use this station to try pike backs which can help teach the swing for straddle backs without a spot. Adults often appreciate not having to worry about swinging over a low bar that is in the way if you're going to a whale mat off a set of bars, so a high bar like this works best if you have it. If the pike back goes well, you can try the drill as a straddle back, thinking of straddling at the last minute.
Double Flyaway Progressions
This tutorial assumes you have a layout flyaway already, as well as a loose foam pit.
I hope you enjoyed these adult gymnastics training tips for bars!
