Straps training is another great tool to introduce and refine many uneven and horizontal bar skills. Coaches must teach their gymnasts how to use the straps correctly and in a safe manner. These clips are examples of the proper straps and hands placement to train over grip skills.
Although front giants may be trained using straps with an overgrip to practice certain skills such as inverted giants in eagle grip, the intitial grip required is an undergrip. Therefore it is important to know how to place the hands on the straps for safe undergrip swings.
