    WAG Securing grips onto your fingers with rubber bands

    Hey I have been having a heap of trouble keeping my grips on my fingers. I have seen pictures of people using rubber bands and I was just wondering if it is a good idea and how to put the rubber band on? Thanks

    WAG Flat Palm, of fingers on pike/straddle press

    Is there a difference? I notice the flat Palm presses are harder, but a friend of mine who is a coach also feels it can put unnecessary stress on the wrists. For competition, I know girls are not really doing these in their floor routines like the guys, so I am talking about for conditioning...

    WAG Bump/warts at nail beds on bar grip fingers?

    Anyone else have this problem? Dd has developed bumps on her fingers between her last knuckles the nail on her two fingers that go into the grip holes. They don't look like traditional warts but I can't imagine what else they could be. They don't really look like callouses either. They don't...

    Fingers and Toes Crossed

    DD's next meet is at her old gym. We have been back since we left a year and a half ago. People, including owners, were mostly friendly. Just hoping she feel comfortable there and does her best. Her coach told he last night she can probably compete a meet in June as a Level 7, after...

    Parents Cross your fingers!

    Beth's one HC told her that Beth "might" be earning a new floor routine. Beth is VERY excited and is willing to use an old routine of someone else's rather than have one choreographed just for her--just to get something different! Not holding my breath, but it sounds like she might not have...

    Meet this weekend...cross your fingers...
