should you arch on Pak?

Like Nastia.

Nastia Pak

Or be much straighter like Bailey Key.

Key Pak

For most gymnasts the arch technique is easier. Easier to stall the rotation.

Most kids should start with a good deal of arch. Later experiment with less arch.

WOGymnastika linked to a series of Paks from Rodionova. Over her career she’s gotten straighter. And improved her form.
