Itty Bitties

Hi All,

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.

What are your favorite drills for your lower level kids?

    My drill for the kip is the “Ball Glide” We take a ball and have the kids glide on it. once they get that we have them do the “Ball candlestick” they glide on the ball then candlestick up to the bar. once they pass that i spot them on a kip then have them try it on their own
