Quick Tip: Developing Punching and Coordination

Hi All,

Today I thought I’d share one of the drills I do with young gymnasts to develop their punching and coordination. There are lots and lots of ways of doing these types of drills so I try to find a lot of little different ways to work it in so that they don’t get too bored.

Quick Tip Developing punching and coordination

There are lots of ways you can do these drills, this is with a small hula hoop, but I really prefer carpet squares or a chalk box on the floor. The more ways you can get gymnasts punching and jumping early, the better off they’ll be.
