Strap giants help gymnasts to understand the tap actions  timing  and improve their body positions during the skill.  Before attempting strap back gaints the gymnasts need some experience with giants with spot and big swings with straps.  Turning is not an option.  Just swing down in the opposite direction.  At the begining it is also wise for the coach to stand on a spotting surface with adequate height to assist the athlete in case they get loose and begin to collapse against the bar.  Strap back gaints should start from building increasingly biger swings instead of from a cast.  To finish a set the athletes must be instructed to stop tapping and keep the arms straight until the body does not make the giant over and swings back down with decreasing momentum.
