  1. I have no idea if this is the appropriate forum to ask this, feel free to move it need be!
    So I’m a WAG gymnast, and I don’t watch a whole lot of MAG. I’ve noticed on high bar before dismounts, men tend to change their form on their giants. The whole arch thing they do seems to get them more power, but are they deducted for not having a perfectly laid out body position? Just something that’s always been on my mind :)

  2. GOod question. That is a chinese tap. It is the way men get the power to do their dismounts. It is a pike, arch, kick. Without this, they would not have the power to get the dismounts they do.
