Frank Santasiero Posted August 22, 2017 Share Posted August 22, 2017 I have been attending adult gymnastic classes. Over the past few weeks I have been working on swinging on the bar in hopes of someday doing a giant swing. I am not young (52) and have terrible mobility but despite that I feel that I can generate enough momentum to go all the way around. I think I cover about 270 degrees and can definitely swing harder. I have been taught the proper way to swing by a gymnastics coach so I know the proper shapes. My problem is that I have the fear of the unknown if I decide to go for it. I am strapped to the bar on a PVC pipe so I am not peeling off the bar. One side of me says that if I keep my arms straight that nothing bad is likely to happen. The other side says that this is just a really bad idea. My question is......... if I don't bend my arms (and that is a big if) what can possibly go wrong?
