I love learning from other coaches; in general what are your favorite drills? Of course we have our favorite drills to work layouts or kips- but just in general- what drills do you love?

So broad, there are so many! Would be easier to lust of it was skill specific!

I am sorry! How about favorite drills for foundational skills e.g.: Handstand shape, BWO/FWO, RO, FHS, BHS, Blocking, Punching, Kip (the dread!!)?

My favorite vault drill is double layouts off the trampoline into the pit, it helps simulate the landing and air awareness.

My favorite bars drill is a bounce to handstand (using t-trainer and a single low bar) We used it a lot for holding and hitting handstands in the lower levels which is a big asset for me now. I also love the tkatchev drill on the trampoline with a bar and a mat behind.

My favorite beam drill is doing my jumps onto a panel mat.

For floor I like doing bounce handstand double twists with a t-trainer and a block.
