Toes To Bar Tutorial

Learning and Connecting your “Toes to Bar”

A quick toes to bar tutorial from Coach David and Courtney de Leon

Toes to bar can be a very tricky movement. When one lacks rhythm at the bottom of the movement it is difficult and for some even impossible to connect more than one. But no worries, we are here to help.

Most problems during the toes to bar occur at the body. There is one quick fix that is mentioned a few times in the video. The problem is hesitation at the bottom (explained in the video) if this can be fixed, you will have a much better time finding your rhythm during the movement.

If you have any questions about the movement please do not hesitate to ask. I’m happy to help as much as possible.

Here is a quick toes to bar tutorial video that is guaranteed to help you succeed when it comes to toes to bar.
