About
A favorite root skill of Romanians and Australians (for some reason), the basic clear-hip circle is used as a way of cramming another C element into a routine for those who feel confident they can finish it in handstand (and some that definitely don’t). It is, however, less common in this regard than the toe-on or Stalder circles and tends to be chosen by the weaker bars workers.
