Not enough bars

Hi All,

So I’m sure all of us have run into this at one point or another. There just aren’t enough bars! You may end up with twice as many (or more) kids in a group than bars that you have. But even when you don’t have the ideal set-up we still need to do our best to prepare our gymnasts. So today I’m going to share a couple videos of side stations that will help improve your bars without having to use them.

This first one is definitely a staple for me. You can either do it on stall bars like this, or you can do on a springboard with gymnasts bending their arms and holding onto the top of the springboard.

This second one is a fantastic set-up that will definitely help your gymnasts with their shaping and body tension. Gymnasts need to be able to keep pressure on the bar and this set-up works well for that.

Train hard!
