Vintage Pommel Horse Bench
The pommel horse was actually developed centuries ago. It was used by military soldiers as an artificial horse to practice mounting and dismounting. In fact, it’s believed that Alexander the Great used two pommel horses. But typically a pommel horse is used by gymnasts and is considered one of the more difficult men’s events. The pommel horse is used to perform single and double leg exercises. The single leg exercise is generally in the form of scissors but double leg is usually the main staple of the routine. The gymnast swings both legs in a circular motion and utilizes the entire bench. The routine ends when the gymnast performs a dismount either by swinging his body over the horse or going through a handstand to land on the mat. I think we can all agree that this sport requires a lot of practice. So when you sit down to dinner each night you can practice your single and double leg routines. As long as there is no one sitting next to you on the vintage pommel horse bench. That’s a story for another day.
