Any older former gymnasts remember these routines from the early 1990s? I’m just coming back to gymnastics with my kids after a 30-year hiatus and I’m trying to figure out how the current levels compare to the old levels. I think contemporary JO level 4 and 5 are like the 1989 level 5 & 6. Back then, level 5 was the first competitive level and optionals started at level 8. How has that changed? And how do The xcell levels compare to the old-school compulsory levels? Also, my kids are boys and I’m really confused about how the levels compare.
Also please feel free to reminisce about these old routines. I hope that they have chilled out with all the body waves! Just a warning, the floor music will return to haunt your dreams!
