So today I’m going to talk a little bit about weight shifting. In my mind this is something that should be introduced super early. That being said, it’s SOO easy to do. There are a million drills including just having your kids in a push-up position on a floor bar and telling them to pick each hand up without bending their arms. But here are some videos that might be helpful.
Leg cuts and especially the lead ups to them are a great way to teach weight shifting. These drills are awesome.
By the way, there can never be enough sets of parallettes in a gym. I never run out of things to do with them.
This is another really great drill. Kids seem to have a lot of fun with it to.
