My daughter is new to gymnastics. She has been at her gym for one year. M is currently a level 5, and I was wondering if anyone can let me know if she should have grips at this point? Any information you can give would be helpful. thanks
JMO, stay away from palm guards. They really don't do anything to help the gymmie swing bars and I honestly think their only purpose is to let little ones look like a "big girl."Palm guards helped me immensely. Last year I ripped almost every other practice - I was doing a lot of conditioning and not much bars. After the competition season, I got palm guard grips and I stopped ripping for several months, and even after that period, I ripped a lot less than I had without them. It's just something about my palms that makes them rippy. They even get little rips when I do pull ups and skin the cats and stuff without grips.
