At the levels which a gymnast is asked to perform challenging beam and bar routines, powerful vaults, and difficult tumbling passes, a gymnast must possess significant core strength, lower extremity stability, muscular power, and endurance. This program will take your training to new heights to achieve the strength necessary to move to the next level and beyond, and work on necessary muscle strengthening to prevent overuse injury.
In "Competitive and Elite Strength and Conditioning," gymnasts age 11+ are instructed exercises in three different circuits that last 30-45 minutes each, depending on the number of sets and repetitions you choose to complete. Each exercise clip includes full demonstration and instruction of proper technique and body mechanics, focusing on core, upper body, and lower body strengthening, and plyometric training. The exercises can be progressed from a skilled to highly advanced level for the elite competitive gymnast with the use of weights, sport cords, foam rolls, TRX straps, and sliding discs. The challenge levels are endless, and you choose how fast or slow you progress, according to your ability and schedule! You will also receive a written exercise progression for each exercise.
