Today I wanted to share some awesome drills for compulsory beam. It’s really, really, important to build a solid foundation on beam, but it’s easy to get stuck on complex and your staple drills and to get bored, or worse, burnt out doing the same things over and over. So today I thought I would share some some things you might think to add to your compulsory beam rotations.
This first drill is one I can’t believe I hadn’t seen before. It seems SO SIMPLE. We spend so much time trying to teach gymnasts to push through their toes, and this is such a genius way of doing it! I need to start a list of all of the uses for sliders.
