So today’s post is one about getting your kids used to different grips (not the kind you put on your hands), on bars. Its something that I think gets overlooked a lot, possibly because it’s assumed that most children can flip their hands around backwards. But I think in these cases the shape is neglected.
This first video is a nice station you can have your kids play around with on floor bar. They can play around with all of the different grips while shape is emphasized.
This second video is one by Tony Retrosi. This idea can also be applied to straddle and pike press handstands as well as handstand holds on a floor bar etc.
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!
