Stride Circle

Beginning in a Stride position, with one leg over the bar, and hands on either side, the gymnast pushes upward, and then falls forward, with the bar pressing on the back leg.  The hands are in an “undergrip” position, which is rare in the early stages of gymnastics, but necessary for the gymnast to stay on the bar as the body rises up, and returns to the original position.  A full circle swing is executed, and this skill is considered to be a lead up for the Front Hip Circle.
