Double Pike 1/1 (Floor Exercise)



Floor exercise

Skill type

Known as
Pike(d) full-in
Double pike 1/1
Full-twisting double pike

Unlike the tucked version of the skill, which is performed in many different variations depending on when the twist occurs, the piked version is really only performed as a full-in, with the full twist occurring before the double pike is initiated. As the FIG has gradually recognized, truly piked twisting isn’t really a thing.

The piked full-in is oddly rare on floor these days but is the victim of being valued equally to the tuck. You’re always going to choose the tucked version unless you’re performing both. Few perform both.
