Gymnastics Training Programs?


#1

Any coaches out there know of any resources for gymnastics specific strength and conditioning programming? This would be for me to train with my 11 year old daughter who is a gymnast.

Thanks for the help.

Damn that website must have a low Google ranking…I can’t believe that didn’t come up through all my different searches.

Thanks for the help…


#4

I actually trained in competitive gymnastics for several years. Are there any other gymnasts on the forum?


#5

I do Parkour and acrobatics… It’s like gymnastics. >_>

I don’t do gymnastics but I’m starting out doing bodyweight and eventually gymnastic style training for my upper body, mostly because my jaw dropped the first time I saw what a planche pushup was.

Here’s another resource you might find useful:

This guy has some easy to read tutorials on various bw skills such as planches, levers, the flag, freestanding handstand clap pushups etc
