Forster Pirouette Bars
This pirouette bar provides three training techniques in one. Developed by U.S. National Team bar coach Tom Forster, this unit provides the proper set up to train the latest techniques for pirouette and blind turns on bars. The ¼ turn technique teaches proper progression when learning a complete 180 degree pirouette. Mini bar adjusts to create a 45, 90, or 135 degree angle. Sitting 1.5” higher than the base bar, the mini bar simultaneously teaches the “crooked handstand” technique, which promotes proper weight transfer to the gymnast’s post arm. Removable mini bar allows for use as a standard pirouette bar as well. Manufactured exclusively by Gibson. Watch the video below for an explanation from Tom Forster himself.
