My 13 year old daughter is enrolling in gymnastics class this summer. She’s starting really late, so she’s not expecting to go to the Olympics or anything, but she wants to go as far as possible in the sport. She’s asked me to make an account and ask two questions:
- How far can she reasonably expect to go?
- What are some exercises she can do in preparation for these classes? She can do a backbend already and is working on handstands, kickovers, strength and flexibility, but what are some good strength exercises she can do at home? What are some good exercises she can do to gain skills? My daughter really wants to go into these classes strong enough to learn harder skills relatively quickly. How can she do this?
