sprint training for gymnasts

Gymneo posted another free preview on Facebook.

I renewed my membership to Gymneo English for another year. Around 21 hours of excellent WAG coaching tutorials. The French version has more content (36hrs), however.

Kenzo Shirai – Floor

Three chances to count the twists. Worlds 2015 Glasgow.

Click PLAY or watch his prelims routine on YouTube.

Click PLAY or watch his Team Finals routine on YouTube. (best of the 3)

Kenzo is young. Getting stronger. Trains even more difficulty than this.

If the Code changes to 8 counting skills rather than 10, he’ll still be the man to beat on Floor in the next Olympic Cycle. The Cycle leading to the Tokyo Olympics. :-)

Instead it’s crazy Kenzo stuff. :-)

World Floor Champion Kenzo Shirai


1. Kenzo Shirai JAP (7.6 + 8.633 = 16.233)
2. Max Whitlock GBR (6.8 + 8.766 = 15.566)
3. Santana Zapata SPN (6.7 + 8.500 = 15.200) to Rio!

All hail. Without Denis Ablyazin in this final, Kenzo would have had to have fallen to lose the gold.

Zapata qualifies directly to the Olympic AA with that Bronze medal.

Personally I slightly preferred Deng Shudi’s routine. But am thrilled Santana will be there

bloody brilliant – Max Whitlock Floor

Here’s the anchor GBR routine in the team Final at #Glasgow2015.

Max was recently ill with glandular fever. He seems to be fully recovered.

The silver medal team had no falls over 18 routines. Ono says they had the highest team E-score, as well.
