New Programming Season starting this week.
One way we help you create positive forward momentum in learning new skills is to focus on certain areas for a period of time. Over the summer we focused on strength and last week finished our focus on the Oly Lifts.
Now we begin a new phase of focusing on gymnastics fundamentals and skills. This means mastering movements that use just your body. You’ll see more hanging, more core work, more body weight pressing, handstands, and jumping in the MODs (in addition to strength work to maintain current levels).
Over the last 7 years we’ve seen that folks who regularly practice body weight fundamentals are quicker to pick up more complex movements, stronger weight lifters, and more efficient in workouts. We know that EVERY SINGLE athlete in the gym has some sort of gymnastics goal. Whether it’s getting that first pulp, muscle, handstand push up, or finally stringing together double-unders. We want you to know that we WILL GET THERE, eventually. For THIS WEEK though all of you are back to basics and working on positional strength that will lead to better movement overall. Our gymnastics skills follow a progression and it’s important to master every step before going on to the next.
This is a great time to meet with your Primary Coach wither in person or on the phone to discuss goals and progressions to help you meet them. Your Primary Coach will assign homework outside of class to help you reach those goals faster. Last, your Primary Coach is available for private 15-20 minute skill sessions. One per month is included in membership.
