While watching my son, age 10, in gymnastics class, the competition team of the school where he trains came in and began exercising. Talk about amazing! These kids would sit in a split, put there hands between their legs, and push themselves up backwards into perfect handstands. They’d then reverse the motion, all under perfect control, back to the split. We parents were just stunned! These kids were maybe 9 or 10, ripped, and some of the girls were heavily muscled!
It was truly amazing!
So, I guess the point of the post is: if you have young kids and want them to achieve their best physically, take 'em to a good gymnastics school.
