Lots of teams around here have adults in them, but usually in their 20's to early 30's. Very rare to see someone in their late 30's or older. I think it's great, gymnastics should be a sport that you can enjoy at any age and adults have many advatages that kids don't, while they often struggle with flexibility they build strength easily and dont have to worry about their bodies always growing[ Read More... ]

That's cool her gym is open to her being on the team and even asked her to join! And didn't say you have to be like the 10 year olds/ teenagers or you're out - like with practice schedule and how you practice and workout too. Practice should be individualized in general anyways.

You know about Oksana Chusovitina, Jordan Jovtchev, Blain Wilson, competing in their 30's. The mean average of the competitive gymnast is getting older, but you still get the tv commentators calling an 18 year old gymnast old.

Training hard. 6 months to Beijing Olympics. The Tyson American Cup in March will be exciting! :D At 2007 Worlds Shawn Johnson won medals Nastia won previously, but Nastia was getting over her ankle injury - it was a good comeback from that, and quick to compete at Nationals and Worlds. At the American Cup it will show where everyone is in their training for the Olympics. [quote]"It's so[ Read More... ]

If you go just up and down and not back, it means you're not setting back and/or also your position at the end of your flipflip or roundoff or whatever you're doing before might not be correct - for connecting flip flop flip flop you want to kind of get your feet under after each one, for flip flop back flip you want your feet more out and not under you know.

It does depend on your gymnastics coach, and also what basics / strength&flexibility you already have. Lots of clubs have gymnastics coaches teaching level 1 -3 that just teach those skills, and aren't qualified to teach the harder skills, but some do have the experienced coaches from the beginning, and if they think you are ready, you could learn something like the back flip or front flip or[ Read More... ]
