Julian Aldag Posted August 4, 2017 Share Posted August 4, 2017 I'm curious as to what is the ideal hand width for flysprings. I assumed it would be shoulder width in order to get the most 'blocking' through the shoulders. However, in this video (Look at 1:20), and the hand width is extremly wide! The only thing I can think of is that the gymnast is less concerned of blocking through the shoulders but using the wide arm position (allowing greater thoracic mobility) to increase frontal acceleration (like a forwards "whip back"). I would very much appreciate any insight from the coaches here! @Coach Sommer @Alessandro Mainente (Please forgive me for the tag!!! ) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
