So I’ve been doing a lot of skill specific posts. I thought today I might do a level/age related post. Here are some things that might help your lower level gymnasts.
This first is a great series of exercises for pullovers. A big thanks to Mary Lee Tracy for putting this up.
The second video is a video of cartwheels for beam. I have to say I use cartwheels against the wall frequently. Both with stomach and back against the wall. Back against the wall tends to fix a head sticking out problem, while stomach against the wall helps the gymnast understand where vertical is.
Not to worry!
The full 45 minute lecture of Bars Shaping from Pre-Team Up is now available for download, along with the full powerpoint and all of the videos!
