The Carballo begins like an in-bar endo. After passing through the bottom with a full deep pike compression, the gymnast performs a strong pull to support. He releases the rail when the shoulders have moved up beyond the horizontal bar. During the flying phase, the athlete travels toward the vertical and performs a straddle cut. He then extends with the aim of grabbing the bar in an undergrip while the body is as close to a handstand as possible. The in-bar pike circle is performed with speed and deep compression. Observe how the bar is released while the shoulders are moving higher than the horizontal bar. Notice the strong pulling action coming up from the in-bar circle.
