Around the world most male gymnasts do not take one. Most female gymnasts do.
Average time of a snack break seems to be 10 minutes, based on one informal survey.
I recall arriving as the new Head Coach of one major Gymnastics Club. My first action was to cancel all snack breaks for all groups. (It wasn’t a very popular move with some parents.)
The girls would be allowed to grab a snack as needed, instead.
Snack breaks aren’t needed during a 4hr training, clearly. Many Gyms do not schedule them.
It’s a waste of valuable training time, in my opinion.
