The Six Competitive Apparatus in Men's Artistic Gymnastics

_MG_1078.jpg

An exercise in pure acrobatics, alternating between powerful tumbling series and the composure necessary for balance and strength elements

Floor

Routines mostly involve circles of the legs together and pendulous, scissor swings with the legs split, spectacularly combining these movements while turning and travelling along the horse

Pommel

_MG_1100.jpg

Difficult combination of strength and swinging elements requiring control, strength and balance in the forward and backward swings and strength holds

Rings

A 25m sprint creates the necessary power to explode from the board before the dynamic push off the table, to generate greater height for rotations and flight before landing on the other side

Vault

20220611_Nunawading Gymnastics_optimised-685.jpg

Routines require swinging above and below the bars with acrobatic flight, changes of directions and precise balances, ending in a dramatic dismount off the side or the end of the bars

Parallel Bars

_MG_1180.jpg

A spectacular apparatus, largely due to the combination and variation of giant swings, acrobatic releases and re-grasp flight elements. The high dismounts from the bar allow the gymnast to show his acrobatic talents and landing prowess
