    Just wondering what your boys typically wear to practice? At my boys’ gym, it t-shirts and shorts. The WAG athletes are all in leos (obviously). I’ve followed a gym in Russia on IG (they have some amazing young guys training there), but what I notice is that all the boys wear singlets and gym...

    WAG Limiting Skill Repetitions vs. Limiting Workout Hours

    This is a conversation that I am splitting off from a different thread as there is so much more to think about than just limiting hours. This is one of the most important things that modern high level coaches need to coach for. This discussion is exactly what the title sounds like...

    Parents Why do I always feel tierd after our gym workout

    My daughter is 16 years old and a level 4 gymnast. On Monday she goes for 2 and a half hours. She has about an hour of pretty intense workout and then for the rest of the class time they either do vault, bars, beam or floor. The only problem is right after workout she gets so tired. She even...

    Parents Good online workout for kids

    Snow day, so no gymnastics and we are inside. My daughter cheered up a bit when I said I'd at least find a workout for her to do. Can anyone recommend a good workout video for young gymnasts? Just something to keep her active (yet safe) during a long day indoors.

    Coaches Tabata workout for gymnastics.

    I've been reading up on Tabata training, and it sounds like it would be great for gymnastics. The workouts are quick and effective, which could potentially save on some time during practice. I've been thinking I could get more done during each practice if the conditioning time was reduced...

    Parents Headbands and hairstyles for workout?

    DD is 9 years old with a small head and very fine, slippery hair. Currently I just put her hair in a ponytail before her 4 hour work-outs, and by the time I pick her up from practice her ponytail has collapsed and her hair is all over her face. I picked up some headbands sized for girls at...

    WAG Cutting competition leotards to make into workout leos

    I have two competition leotards (one worn 3 times, the other only worn once), that I'm not sure I want to sell. I think I'd like to make them (or at least one of them, the other is really too pretty to touch) into a workout leo (just a tank leo instead of long sleeves). Has anyone done this...
