    For Coaches How to correct head on bars double lay DM landing?

    Has anyone ever had a kid whip their head on a double lay dismount landing, so that it looks like whiplash as they hit the ground? Gymnast says it doesn't hurt, but it doesn't look healthy to me. She does the "tight arch" style of flipping.

    WAG Simone Biles training a Yurchenko double pike

    Hey! I recently came across a video of Simone doing a Yurchenko double pike into a pit on YouTube. I think that’s super cool and a bit insane! I don’t know if she’ll ever actually compete it but I wouldn’t be surprised if she did. It was just something so fresh with all of the twisting vaults we...

    WAG landing problems on double backs

    Hi, I hope I find some help here. One of my gymnasts can"t land the double back. She says she can't see the floor. Right now she is doing them off the trampoline on a soft mat but she always lands on her back, so 2,5 basically. In my opinion most gymnasts don"t really SEE the floor. What...

    WAG Double pike trouble

    Hello, I have been having a really hard time doing a double pike on the floor. I’m not sure why because I’ve done all the drills, and I can do it very well off of the tumble track and air floor up to height. My layout sets are very high too. Right before I’m about to go for it my heart starts...

    Double jointed in shoulders?

    Just wondering if I may be double jointed in my shoulders, I have no pain in them but from doing walkovers my shoulders seem to click or pop. Also I’m very flexible in my shoulders, so it wouldn’t be to do with that, so do you think that’s what’s causing this weird feeling?

    I'm curious about double backs on floor. How common are they in L9? How long did it take your DD/DS to get it on floor after getting it on tramp? Is this skill like flipping vaults where drills and various combinations of mat stacking go on for a long time before it's ready? DD and another...

    Acromat Double Mini

    Has anyone got one of (or tried) the current model of Acromat Double Minis? We are looking at getting a new one and wondering how bouncy it is.
