Pommel Horse Dismount: Level 7 Pendular Swing Routine

April 5th, 2011 by olssonf Leave a reply »

From Michael Ashe, Golden Bear

It was brought to my attention at State Championships that many athletes were performing the level 7 pommelhorse routines incorrectly. On the pendular routine, many of the athletes were performing an extra circle before the dismount. The dismount should be performed as followed:

On the rear support pick-up, the legs come together in rear support, and half a circle is performed, finishing in front support. Next, a full circle is performed finishing in front support. Finally, a half circle is performed to rear support, followed by a quarter counter turn to dismount.

Feel free to contact me with any routine composition questions, or rules questions in general.
