High Bar

A routine on high bar comprises circling skills, release and regrasp skills and a dismount. The giant circle is a fundamental skill on this piece of apparatus since it is used to link the circling skills and to generate the required linear and angular momentum for the complex release skills.

See also the section about asymmetric bars where similar skills are employed.
