Active stretching also good - leg kicks: front, back, and to each side Even cartwheels stretch out your legs too - better warm-up first though! You can really feel that when you're sore or have something pulled.

[FONT="Impact"]Okay, so I ripped a bit of my interior deltoid muscle on my shoulder. I was going to physical therapy 3-4 times a week for 5 weeks or so. None of that helped my shoulder very much. My russian coach suggested I try acupuncture. After the second treatment, my shoulder is fully healed. It used to hurt just when I held it up. Now, I am 100% back in training at level 10 artistic[ Read More... ]

age restrictions are a bit wierd. they dont have them in other sports and its not fair just to have it in gymnastics. the higher the age is raised, the less popular this sport will get. irts so nice to have a sport where the best are just little girls. the best gymnast ever was her best at 14, that says a lot. lifting the limit to 18 is nothing short of insane, if swimmers are competing at 14,[ Read More... ]

Hi Sorry for what is probably a reallllly slow reply, just saw it. Active flexibility is defined as the ROM available through muscle control, without the assistance of gravity, or any other aid. For example lifting and holding a leg up as high as you can..that is active flexibility. Leg kicks, and leaps are dynamic flexibility. The two are quite distinct and require separate modes of training.[ Read More... ]

[quote=Valentin;76388]Hi The research does seem to support this. Vibration is an effective means of improving flexibility, albeit probably no miracle cure in elite athletes, who are close the their peak flexibility potential. However there is plenty of research that shows that vibration training doesn't effect power like static stretching does.[/quote] Valentin: you mean active stretching? Like[ Read More... ]

Chellsie Memmel isn't going to say anything bad about the selection process or Martha Karolyi's role in it as the head - she's on the team. Same as Nastia Liukin, or Shawn Johnson, and probably even the alternates too, and those that are currently elite gymnasts. Different when you're retired already like Dominique Moceanu and have really nothing to do with it now, like endorsements, sponsorship[ Read More... ]

This means a good bouncy springy floor isn't just to get higher air and get to the the extra twist or extra rotation, but it is also about absorbing the impact of your landing. 8 inchers, 4 inchers, and sting mats on the floor, the mats under the bars, the pit, mats in the pit[ Read More... ]
