A developing young gymnast does not naturally possess the balance, coordination, strength, and movement patterns necessary for the mastery of basic gymnastic skills. "Youth Strength and Stability Training" has all of the tools to improve upon these areas to become a better gymnast and athlete.
In this video a gymnast is given three different circuits, each 25-40 minutes in length, depending on the repetitions and sets the gymnast chooses to complete. The first circuit, for gymnasts age 7-8, teaches beginning core and strengthening exercises, and movement patterns necessary for an athlete to progress through the beginning gymnastic levels. Two ‘Developing Youth’ circuits, for gymnasts ages 8-10, will help a gymnast build core stability and balance, improve body awareness, and build a strong foundation for future gymnastic skills on each apparatus. Each exercise clip includes detailed demonstration and instruction of proper body mechanics and technique. The exercises in this video range from simple to moderately difficult, depending on the gymnast’s skill level, and each exercise is progressed as the gymnast becomes stronger. You choose the speed of your progressions according to your comfort level.
