My daughter was just working these (on strap) at the last practice. Very cool to see.

Do you have any idea what level this skill typically shows up in?
Mine did it in level 6. Others on her team MAY hit it in level 8. There’s huge variation

I thought it would be a fun discussion so here goes…

What has been the hardest skill for your gymnast to acquire or “get” so far? I don’t mean the most difficult skill necessarily, but the one that took your gymnast the longest to get. Include your gymnast’s level in the comment.

Curious to see all the different responses!

My Xcel Silver struggled for months to consistently do her ROBHS, and she’s still working hard at her kip
my hardest skill is a squat on. not sure why, but it just keeps coming and going for me even though I've been doing it for 3 years and can do a toe shoot. I'm competing platinum and I'm afraid I won't be able to do it in a meet.
