Piked Stalder Forward, and with 1/2 Turn

Uneven Bars

Skill type

Known as
Piked-Stalder forward 1/1
Inbar forward full
Clear pike forward 1/1

I mean, the regular forward piked-Stalder without any twisting doesn’t even have a footprint in modern elite bars routines, so there’s certainly no hope for the full twist. For most bars circles, it’s the 1.5 twist version that has completely disappeared because of the handstand deductions, but in the case of a forward piked-Stalder, the full twist would face the same extinction consideration.

Why would you ever possibly put yourself through this skill?


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
