The Jumping Bars (ジャンピングバー) was an obstacle introduced with the Third Stage redesign in SASUKE 14.

Competitors must swing and jump to the next bar below. Usually, this obstacle leads into another obstacle without any rests in between.

Over the nine tournaments it has been a obstacle, the obstacle has gone through three versions.

It was taken out of the Third Stage after Urushihara Yuuji's Kanzenseiha.

In the first version of this obstacle, competitors had to jump through six bars, each 1.6m apart. The total length of the obstacle was 8m.

This version of the obstacle was the hardest out of all of them, as most competitors were physically drained by the time they reached the Climbing Bars.

This version of the obstacle took out two competitors, Nagano Makoto and Yamada Koji in its two tournament span. It also led Shiratori Bunpei to fail on the Climbing Bars.

Only three competitors cleared this version: Takeda Toshihiro, Shiratori Bunpei, and Kobayashi Shinji.

Because no competitor even made it to the Pipe Slider in SASUKE 14 or SASUKE 15, the producers of the show decided to make the Third Stage slightly easier.

The first bar was positioned further away from the resting platform to allow competitors to have more leg room when gathering up momentum. The number of bars were also reduced from 6 to 4.

This was proven to make the obstacle easier, as no one failed there in SASUKE 16 or SASUKE 17.

The Jumping Bars appeared on American Ninja Warrior 1, as the eighth obstacle during semifinal, and then as the fifth obstacle on American Ninja Warrior 2 and American Ninja Warrior 3 (both in qualifying and semifinal), and then on American Ninja Warrior 4 in Northeast region, with a trampoline added at the starting platform.

Then, the obstacle returned as the fourth obstacle on American Ninja Warrior 6 in Venice Beach. However, this obstacle was combined with the cargo net. Therefore, competitors must jump from the trampoline and grab the first bar. Then, they must make the transition to the second bar, and then the transition to the cargo net to reach the landing platform. Because of that, the obstacle was named as the Jumping Bars Into Cargo Net.

Later, a similar version of the obstacle (called as the Triple Swing) would later appear as the eighth and final obstacle on American Ninja Warrior 7 in Stage One.
