The power of gymnastics in training is using our body weight as the sole source of resistance.
Gymnastics have the ability to significantly improve your body’s strength, by ultimately improving your strength-to-weight ratio. Moreover, gymnastics also helps us to improve coordination, balance, agility, accuracy, and flexibility.
The variety of movements in gymnastics is unparalleled. We can train gymnastics through the following movements:
- Air Squats
- Handstand Push-Ups
- Pistol Squats
… and many more!
We frequently employ gymnastics movements in our training. Our workouts combine gymnastics, weightlifting, and cardio, which creates a varied and functional workout.
Mobility in Gymnastics
To move as efficiently as possible, you must make time for mobility. You can incorporate mobility directly into your workout sessions by doing the following
- Doing a full-range air squat and spending time at the bottom of the squat to improve your squat depth and knee flexion
- Hanging on the pull-up bar to improve grip strength and open up your lats
- Performing a deficit push-up to improve shoulder range of motion.
Your body’s mobility will determine your gymnastics ability. Being supple and flexible will allow you to move better and improve your body’s functionality.
You don’t need any equipment to start incorporating gymnastics into your workout routine.
Start by doing 25 air squats on the minute for 12 minutes. By the end of those 12 minutes, you will have done 300 air squats. Simple, but effective.
