This 30-day plan is the best way to begin your gymnastics training. You will learn to harness your body's strength with positional strength and movements targeted for a beginner gymnast.
It contains five workouts that incorporate body-weight strength training on apparatus or by using equipment like boxes, paralletes and dumbbells. Over one month you will utilize the core control skills learned in my Core Virtuosity series and incorporate them into challenging upper-body exercises to further improve your control, form and body awareness.
The movements we cover in this plan are not meant to be done for speed, rather they are slow and controlled so you can learn how to manipulate your body like a gymnast. To truly master gymnastics skills, static holds and controlled movement are the next building block off of the creation of body shapes learned in the Core Virtuosity Program. Along with the five videos, I’ve also included an Assessment Test, which contains five different exercises to gauge your progress as you go through this series.
Lastly, is the addition of a supplemental shoulder prehab video sequence that I used on a daily basis when I was a competitive gymnast and I still use today! I would recommend everyone incorporating this sequence into their daily training as a way to build strength and stability around the shoulder joint.
