A horizontal bar is a gymnastic device, consisting of a metal or fiberglass shelf attached to vertical posts. However, horizontal bars can also be encountered as play equipment in playgrounds. Gymnastics on the horizontal bar is one of the components of the Olympic all-around gymnastics for men as a gymnastics discipline. Men's gymnastics uses a horizontal bar at swing height, which means that the gymnast can hang from the rack without their feet touching the floor. The elements that are performed on the horizontal bar are mainly swing elements (such as the giant swing) and turning (such as the belly twist). In addition, flight elements are also turned on the higher levels. The horizontal bar has a similar position for men's gymnastics as the bridge is uneven in women's gymnastics. To keep a good grip on the (metal) horizontal bar, most gymnasts use gymnastics leathers and magnesium. Category:Gymnastics
