To get oversplits, good to first warm up doing splits on the floor, then with one foot on a panel mat, higher and higher as you get better at it. To get a better pancake and pike stretch sometimes it can be better and easier to get someone to push you down a little and help you go down further and further - when you got the stretch pretty good, then it's easier to do it by yourself. To increase[ Read More... ]

Some people learn layout flyaway on bars first to get the get away from the bar motion, not pull the bar, etc.; tucking is good if you need to get more rotation. Depends on the coach.

***********SPOILER IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED "PERFECT BODY" MOVIE YET!!!!!!!!!!!!*************************************** i like the part where Andie goes back to the gym thinking that's where she wants to be, and then right when she gets there she gets to watch the coach doing the same kind of abuse he did to her to another new gymnast he's signed on, and realizes this isn't the place for her.[ Read More... ]

Totally!! Makes sense to wear those bike shorts kind - what would the reason not to be? - that it affects the line of the gymnast? As John Stossel puts it on 20/20...give me a break!

The Malaysian Gymnastics Federation (MGF) is talking about letting the country's top rhythmic gymnast Durratun go to a competition with her weight gain an issue, though they say it is at most 3 kilos, not the speculated 10 kilos: honorary secretary N. Shanmugarajah: [quote]"Yes, her weight did go up, but it is only normal for an injured athlete who does seven or eight months of only light[ Read More... ]

Nastia will probably do all 4 events though, or maybe just not vault, if it's really just a sprained ankle. If it's not too serious of a sprain, a sprained ankle could heal within a week (if she doesn't try to test it too early and too hard). You can tell she's hoping and planning on doing more than uneven bars: Nastia says: "I was a little disappointed, but I'm still here on the team and I'm[ Read More... ]

The meet was in Caceres, Spain on Saturday September 30th. Spain got higher scores than Romania on vault, uneven bars, and floor, Romania got higher on beam. Maybe because Romania did not send its top 6 girls that it is using for Worlds, as they are know to do that! They brought 3 members from their named World Team - Elena Chiric, Florica Leonida, and Loredana Sucar - and 3 juniors - Aluissa[ Read More... ]

Yup, chalk is good! I like to use water on my grips, then chalk on it, and some drips of water and then chalk under the grips. Do you have dowels or the beginner type of grips? That can make a difference in rips also. (Dowels are the ones that go to your fingertips, and the beginner type goes down all the way to the bottom of your fingers, and dowels has that bump thing in the grips that will[ Read More... ]
