    • A.

      Cast 3 times to get the most momentum before you circle.

    • B.

      Circle the gymnast around the bar until they have mastered that with straight arms, before adding a small cast or any momentum.

    B. Circle the gymnast around the bar until they have mastered that with straight arms, before adding a small cast or any momentum.
    C. Start with a single leg pump to try the circle with a little momentum to ensure that they can still circle around the bar with straight arms.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to circle the gymnast around the bar until they have mastered that with straight arms, before adding a small cast or any momentum. This approach allows the gymnast to first develop the necessary technique and strength to perform the back hip circle correctly with straight arms. Once they have mastered this, they can then progress to adding a small cast or momentum to further enhance the skill. Starting with a single leg pump to try the circle with a little momentum is also a valid approach to ensure that the gymnast can still maintain straight arms while performing the circle.
