Rings spotting bungee belt by Tower Spot

Just once I tried to build my own version of a Rings bungee belt. It lasted about 3 weeks before falling apart.

A professional version is available. Safer on the shoulders. Easy to do more repetitions of swings. It works for dismounts. And, of course, less spotting is needed.

Tower Spot System includes TS anchors, TS adult and child harnesses, TS resistance bands (5 for each side, 10 total).

Details $699

liquid chalk for Gymnastics?

UPDATE

I got some feedback on this radical idea.  Male gymnasts tried it at one club but quickly abandoned the idea.  It didn’t work as well for H Bar.

Dr. Bill Sands sent a Safety Data Sheet on Isopropyl Alcohol (50-100%).

Risks include the fact that Isopropyl Alcohol is flammable. And some are allergic to topical alcohol. 

All in all, I don’t think I’d try liquid chalk. 

___ original post:

Steve Arkell linked to this video, a rock climber making her own liquid chalk.

Alcohol is a component, a disinfectant.

I checked with a rock climbing coach who agreed it couldn’t hurt to use chalk with alcohol on reopening after COVID-19.  On climbing walls. And in sports like Gymnastics.

He suggested we could use 100% alcohol in the formula.

When kids are in the Gym we should remind them not to touch their face, as well.

Most of the time, the gymnast “rips off” … hopefully into the pit.
