Hollow

This is a position involving the entire body.  The term “hollow” generally refers to the back.  When a gymnast is in a hollow position, coaches like to see the lower back pressed backward, resulting in a rounded position.  The gymnast can also concentrate on curving the stomach and chest inward to achieve a hollow position.  Hollow is the opposite of Arch.
