conditioning with good form

Did you know Al Fong, personal coach of 2004 Olympians Terin Humphrey and Courtney McCool, has a blog?

Ask Al Fong – Dragon Gymnastics

It’s not at all dedicated to Elite gymnastics. Surprising considering Al’s reputation.

For example, Al dedicates one post to the under appreciated forward hip circle on bars. (I like the second drill, the “sneeze”.)

Another post recommends weight training as a supplement. No surprise there.

What caught my eye was how his girls condition with perfect form.

Most coaches ask their kids to keep form and position while conditioning, but how many actually do?

Al Fong’s gymnasts do.
