What is a balance beam?
The balance or gymnastics beam is a piece of sports equipment and is a discipline in women's gymnastics. The gymnasts show different acrobatic elements and rotations on the bar, which is only 10 cm wide. In addition to the technical difficulty, the artistic representation of the gymnasts on the sports equipment also plays an important role. Numerous exercise balance beams are available for training and gymnastics.
When was the balance beam invented?
The balance beam was first used in a competition in Budapest in 1934.
How wide is a balance beam?
In 1934 the gymnast was only 8 cm wide. As more acrobatic elements such as rollovers and somersaults were shown, the width of the bar was increased to 10 cm. Today, a balance beam in competition is 5 meters long, 10 cm wide and 125 cm high.
The gym bar in school sports and children's gymnastics
In school sports and children's gymnastics, the balance beam can not only be used for gymnastics. Due to the narrow tread, it is ideal for training balance or sense of balance, ability to concentrate and body tension. Who can balance with their eyes closed on the tread while keeping their sense of direction? Can the balance beam also be run over backwards? How can two people walk past each other in the opposite direction? These questions, as well as many others, can be great starting points for exercises on the gymnastic bar. The possibilities for exercises on the balancing beam are limitless. You can also install the balance beam in a movement landscape for children. There are gymnastic bars that are increasingly padded with soft foam. The padding with foam for reducing the impact on the devices during exercises or falls. With an optimal upholstery with top layer and fleece cover, there is a reduced force on the joints with the same stability. This is ideal for turns and pirouettes. Even cautious children like to balance using these gymnastic bars.

The beams with reduced height mostly have wooden feet. In addition, the gymnastics bars are height adjustable. The balance beam not only have a cushion and a top layer, but also have a fleece cover
Accessories for the balance beam
In the beginning of the exercise, the jump takes place, e.g. from a stepping stone. To protect against injuries, the balance beam or gymnastics beam must always be covered with mats. Since the exit is via a jump, low jump mats are required at the end of the beam. Additional accessories such as a driving device for easy transport, widening of the tread or a support mat are a useful support in everyday training.
