on the bars:) Yes you read this right... I did them... Not my girls..... My legs are killing me but I made them all..
Took 4 attempts to make my front hip circle and then I did three of them:)
took 1 attempt before I made my stride circle but then I made like 4 of them and I did a ton of back hip circles... My abs feel fine but my thighs from trying to do a kip are killing me, lol......

lol... yes I think so level 6 bars here I come... I just have to get out there and practice and I think I can get my kips back, lol...
Oh my shoulders are killing me this morning and so is my neck.
Oh and I do have the other issue in that when you have something altered surgically from having them completely depleted from children if you know what I mean... can you really feel them when trying to do a glide in the kip, lol...

We had a 38 year old mom of a couple of L4s compete as a L5 or L6 yesterday. It was our home meet, but I had left already from my work assignment. I would have loved to see her. I think she medaled! Isn't that amazing? Maybe you can compete next year? :D


That is so awesome - sounds fun - now we all fully expect you to hit handstand out of your clear hip in the level 6 routine :D

That is so awesome. I was not awesome at bars as a gymnast, but now as a coach I love to play on them in my off time. I have a 2 year old and got back to doing skills that it had been years. My Front Handspring, Punch fonts, pull overs, backhip circle and I even made my stride circle a couple times, cartwheels on the beam , I was close to my front hip circle. But I am pregnant again so no bars for me right now. Darn it. But I'm happy about the pregnancy.
