The perfect tool for beginners and smaller gymnasts who want to practice new skills. You can e.g. get better at making back handsprings and soon be able to manage it without help. It is a really good tool, both to practice the technique, but also to overcome the barrier that many children have in relation to tumbling backwards. For gymnasts who can already do a back handspring, it can also be used to get better at stretching arms and legs during the tumble.
Choose the right Air Barrel
When choosing the size of your Air Barrel, you should look at the height of the gymnast.
If the gymnast is under 140 cm, we recommend that you choose a size of 70 cm
If the gymnast is over 140 cm, we recommend that you choose a size of 85 cm
Materials and maintenance
An Air Barrel from GymPlay is made of strong PVC in environmental-friendly quality. There are two handles at each end of the handspring trainer, so it is easy for one or two receivers to “guide” the gymnast around in the handspring.
An Airbarrel does not require special maintenance. However, it is important that it is dry when you pack it down. Clean it with a damp cloth (possibly with a little detergent) if there are stains or the like on it.
For home use and for institutions
An Air Barrel is ideal for home use, but also for unions, schools and institutions. Make your own training station where the kids can practice back and front handsprings. Can be used on folding mats, Airtracks and on inclines or directly on the floor or lawn.
