I use the tape strips method around the ring/middle fingers on each hand, right under the grips. It works great! And you can do bars much longer. The strips method is much better than creating a tape glove which someone at my gym used to do - you can feel the bar better because it's less tape between your hand and the grip and the bars and also it's not really necessary to do the tape glove -[ Read More... ]

I don't know how the USA background checks work, but it is a good idea and a good start. A gym in the area just re-hired a coach that had all this drama around him of girls and parents complaining about his conduct towards them, asking the underage kids to meet them outside of the gym, make plans with the underage kids, calling them, giving them gifts, "playfully touching" them, etc. Hopefully[ Read More... ]

Another thing to think about is that there are different qualities of spotting. Experience, common sense, knowledge, strength and build of the coach counts a lot. I would say even if you are a small or light or young gymnast. I was visiting a gym today and was just watching a little bit of a class to see how that gym is and it was amazing to me that during warm up the coaches had their arms[ Read More... ]

Also...by keep practicing bars! It builds up your callouses and your skin. I had a few months break and went back to the gym today and did like 45 minutes of bars and got small rips on my hands and on the sides on the wrists, using the regular way of using tape grips under my grips like I usually do. So, keep working on bars helps to build up your skin!
