I'm just writing to congradulate you on your site. I've been looking ate a few 'gymnastic tips' sites recently and I have to give it too u, ure is the best by far.
I have one favour to ask. Is it possible for you to give some tips on the back-walkover flip flop on beam? I have difficulty joining it and would love a bit of your advice.
once again, congradulations!
Katie

Hi, your site is excellent! I have a tip for any gymnasts working on a new move- before you try it, picture yourself in you head doing it perfectly. I tried this for a handstand on the bar and it really worked. Thanks for all the great tips, keep up the good work!



Angela   22-October-2002 - 13:19:33

Hey I think your sight is awesome. And if I were still in gymnastics it would really help me out. After training for 12 years and being off for 2 years, I can't keep my mind out of the gym. Then I seem to remember of the bad times and can't imagine going back to that, then I'll think of the good times. I'm also in a very tough situation because I'm on an all-star basketball team, and I really like basketball but still I keep thinking back to gymnastics. I find gymnastics is the best sport to win and the worst to lose in (if you let it) To everybody still involved I am speaking from a lot of expirence, don't let a bad competition get you down, like I did. Let it motivate you to suceed. And make sure you stretch and condition, I know it is a pain when you have all the equipment there ready to maybe learn that great new move, but the most part why I had to quit was because I got a lot of inguries (that probably could of been prevented) and I lost strength and then as a result wasn't able to do skills at 12 that I could do when I was 7. I don't know if I could go back, but I guess if I'm meant to go back it will all work out! Good luck to all the gymnasts and coaches this year and years to follow. Kepp working hard and make sure you acutally want to quit before you end up like me saying that I want to go back but don't know if you can.

Nessa:)

PS- Be care-full in the gym but be fearless...trust me that will help a lot!

your website is very helpful, as well as all the other girls on this comment page i am having trouble with giants on bars i am doing them awesome as my coach says on the chicken grips (the strap bars). I have only been doing gymnastics for 2 years and i think it is the best sport ever. My coach says if i get giants then i can move to the highest group in my club. Please would you give advice on giants.

P.S- Thank you for all the advice in the future and the past!.!.!.!.!.

Johnna   16-July-2006 - 01:22:46
yeah, it'd be nice to have something about the "brain-body" connection.i tend to have trouble with that.without a "brain-body" connenection you can't make changes, without changes you can't get skills, without skills you can't move forward onto more skills, without that you can't, well... you just get stuck. and giants too, i understand them but, i can't make a connection from by brain, to my body. and it's real frusterating



TRAMPOLINEST   15-October-2006 - 21:51:31
THERE IS ONLY ONE TIP FOR GMYNAST IT IS TO BELOEIVE IN YOUR SELG
