Kelly Manjak – gymnastics bars training

Called up my old friend Kelly Manjak today. Former coach of Olympic Floor Champion Kyle Shewfelt.

Kelly’s at Oakville Gymnastics in Ontario, Canada. And one of the best coaches I know.

Here’s some training footage of one of his girls, Sabrina Gill, on bars.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

Legendary Canadian coach Eugene Galperin told us many years ago to train 2 fast giants, 2 slow giants, in series, on strap bar. I see Kelly is still using that drill.

Kelly mentioned that his gymnast Aisha Gerber had just departed for UCLA. Good luck!
