introducing Backwards Flyaway

Sure you could SPOT your beginners hundreds of times. 🙄

Better is to set up a soft mat hill so they can practice it on their own.

That’s Bermuda Gymnastics Association.

We tied one end of the landing mat to the pulleys used for a spotting belt.

Underneath we braced the HILL with spotting boxes.

introducing Press to Handstand

Beginners often train years before making their first straight arm Press to Handstand.

It’s essential they feel SAFE when leaning too far.

Challenge gymnasts to get their hips (Centre of Mass) over the hands before lifting toes off the floor.

Thanks Bermuda Gymnastics Association.

introducing Beat Swing

The concept of Beat Swing can be difficult for beginners. Their limbs are relatively short.

Swinging on Rings is a great way to start. Next do the Beat Swing in slow motion with feet touching the ground while hanging on either Rings or Bar.
