Hi! I'm Alyssa and I'm new here, even though I've been on this site a lot. I'm a level 7 gymnast (stayed down due to my many mental blocks:eek:) I also like many things (non - gymnasticy, though) but I'm not sure if we can talk about it here... anyway, I'm looking foward to meeting new people and having a lot of gym fun! :)

Hey welcome! Great to have you here! I also have a lot of mental blocks :eek: and thats something bthats held me back asa gymnast. MENTAL BLOCKS R HARD!!!! lol well welcome!!!


Welcome to chalk bucket. One thing about gymnasts is everyone is fearful and mental. You have to remember it's a very hard and risky sport. Everything done has a huge risk for potential injury. Some advice on being fearful is to think about what you are doing. Think the skill through in your head so you know exactly what you are doing and what is expected. If you don't understand something ask your coach and make sure you understand everything. Also, be sure to figure out exactly what is making you afraid. Are you afraid of hitting your feet on the bar? missing a hand? landing on your head? straddling the beam? etc.... and ask your coach what precautions you can take to lessen the likelihood of injury...
