How hard are toes-to-bar? Well, it depends on how difficult you make them…

At Invictus Gymnastics we have seen so many great athletes struggle on many gymnastics movements in the gym and competition, and toes-to-bar is no exception. Difficulty of the toes-to-bar can escalate quickly if your body is swinging in a rhythm that isn’t supported by physics and balance, but rather raw strength. Though we may pride ourselves on how strong we are, there is no reasonable excuse for doing things the harder way when trying to complete a speedy task.

The approach to the toes-to-bar is one of the most important aspects of the movement. Starting off rhythm will set you into swings similar to rough seas on a small boat.

Check out the simplified version of the toes-to-bar mount and see if you can learn to ease your way to simpler sets!
