    WAG Does anybody have any at home conditioning lists or schedules for that level of skill, or routine advice from other ADHD gymnasts?

    I’m a gymnast in a very relaxed team. I’m not the strongest or the fastest or the one with the best form, but I do have the highest level skills of our team. Most are working what would be level 3-4, some level 2 and our age group is 11-15. I’m 13 and training level 5 and 6 skills. However, our...

    WAG Conditioning to help keep feet from hitting floor after pirouette

    Looking for some help on what kind of conditioning/strength training my kid can do that will help her with her pirouette. She consistently hits her feet on the floor after her pirouette. I would like to leave the actual “gymnastics“ of the pirouette to her coach. She has struggled with a couple...

    For Parents normal conditioning for preteam?

    My 6 year old is on preteam at her gym, and they've had a few coaching changes over the summer and fall. The current coach seems to really push them for conditioning. I wasn't a gymnast myself, so I'm wondering what is normal for the age/level. She says they do 100 frog jumps multiple times in...

    conditioning plans?

    I'm still not in the gym yet and I've been getting kinda bored with a lot of the same conditioning. Anyone have any conditioning or circuits they recommend to stay in shape?

    WAG Home conditioning programs

    For her summer on-line independent study PE course, my daughter has to log 12 hours a week of exercise. Gymnastics practice was supposed to take care of that and then some. Our state has not announced a timetable for reopening gyms, and she's not going back this summer even if they do reopen...

    For Parents Motivating kids who hate conditioning?

    How are you keeping your kids motivated to condition? I have a 10 and 13 year old. They love gymnastics, and if I tell them to keep up with their skills, they will do that all day, but conditioning is a big no thanks. We are doing it and powering through--using @coachp 's pretty challenging...

    At home conditioning during gym closure

    My daughter's gym is closed at least until the end of the month. I'm still holding out hope that we will see a post-season knowing it isn't likely. What are your kids planning to do at home to try to stay in conditioned shape as much as they can? This will be a big change for their bodies...

    MAG Gymnast Conditioning - What I learned

    I made this video to chart what I learned from gymnasts about conditioning; One of the main things that I observed and for which I don’t think gymnasts get enough credit - is that there is a non existent culture of performance enhancing drugs in gymnastics. If you compare that to a sport...

    For Parents Level 3 Conditioning - Too Hard?

    My daughter moved up to Level 3 in January, and she loves everything about practice and learning routines for Fall, but she is seriously struggling with conditioning. She practices 4 hours/day, 3 days per week and conditioning makes up roughly 45-60 minutes of each practice. She is regularly in...

    WAG Conditioning in plaster !!

    Hey guys! I recently had surgery on a dislocated toe that wouldn't go back in, but now I'm on crutches and in plaster for a while. Does anyone have any ideas of conditioning exercises I could do so when I'm plaster-free I won't be too far behind? Thanks :)

    WAG Conditioning with injuries

    Hi everyone, my gymnast friend recently broke both her arms and was asking us all for ideas of what to do conditioning-wise while she recovers. She wants to mainly keep her core strong. Her coach has told her to do heel taps and leg lifts on the ground. If anyone has any other ideas that would...

    WAG Conditioning - what works best?

    Gymnasts, coaches and parents! I would love to hear how you or your gymnasts are conditioning! There is no real conditioning concept at my gym, it is more like whatever the coaches prefer on a given day. In my opinion the gymnasts would profit by a structured conditioning. So I have been...

    WAG Home conditioning journal

    My compulsory gymnasts will have an important testing event in 5 weeks. It's something like your TOPS testing, and the gymnasts have to pass at least 15 of the 20 skills tested. The strength requirements are HARD and some of the girls have to really work their butts off to ever pass it. Some...

    WAG Weekly Conditioning Homework

    I coach out of a very small gym in a small town. Our JO 2/3 team only has 3.25-6 hours of class each week. The girls range from 7-13. Up until now, we have been giving the gymnasts conditioning homework to complete on a weekly basis. This usually consists of a 10-15 minute workout that must be...
