    Who has matching training leos?

    At my gym, the team girls go to a meet out of state, and they get a free leo from the meet. On certain days the team plans to wear the leo, but they are not forced to.

    Gymnastics New Years Resolution?

    Do you have a gymnastics new years resolution? Mine is to get better on bars. I don't know why but whenever I am on them, my wrists start to hurt, and that distracts me from whatever skill I am working on. Oh, and I am breaking in my grips too, so that doesn't help.

    Looking for a video of a front sault dismount from beam

    I know thats what I thought when I first saw it! I don't think it is the safest thing to do it without a coach or being able to do it in the gym. At least she has a mat to land on.

    Backwards block

    well for a start, the kickover took me a while to get, maybe you should try doing it on some mats or something. Just to get your confidence to kickover. I started it by doing it on my bed, then on a stool, then on a bin, then on the floor. Don't worry, I have a mat that I did it onto. Just try...

    Falling Asleep in Splits

    Yesterday I was practicing my middle split, and I had a pillow under my leg, so I could ease into it a little bit more. I was reading and I had my body pillow under me and I started to get tired, and I fell asleep! I was only asleep for like 10 minutes but then I lost my page in my book. :( I am...

    What level am I?

    I knew I could do a front tuck on tramp at open gym, before I even started gymnastics, and at the end of practice we had free time, so I wanted to work on the bhs, but this 7 yo wanted to work on fhs, so I let her and my coach told me to do whatever I wanted, so I just worked on the front tucks...

    Older starting.

    Never! I started a year ago, and I was old for starting because there were like 7 year olds in my class, but now I'm a level 3! If you don't mind having a class with younger kids, I think you could be competitive. Let's get real, you probably aren't going to the Olympics, but how many people...

    How to help/support my gym friend?

    I just want to make sure she is happy, like I said she is like a sister to me. I guess I will just have to reassure her of her abilities. I didn't know much about what was happening so, I will just have to support her how I feel like I should.

    How to help/support my gym friend?

    My friend and neighbor who is 12yo, has very troublesome ankles. She is a level 5 when I am a level 3 and I really look up to her. We are such good friends, like sisters. A few weeks ago she went to the doctor to have them see what was wrong with her ankles. They think she has an extra bone in...

    do trampolines help gymnastics

    I convinced my grandma and grandpa to get me and my cousin a trampoline, and the only reason my mom and dad won't let me get one in our yard is because of insurance policies. The trampoline has helped me get better at skills I already do at gymnastics. I would tell your parents that you won't do...

    "Weird" Gymnast Habits

    Crack I guess this isn't only a gymnastics thing but if I am nervous, I crack my fingers, my toes, wrists, and ankles. The nervous thing started after I started gymnastics, but that was when my friend showed me an easier way to do it! :P
