Gymnastics Moves for Beginners

Do you want to help your little gymnast become the best they can be? Help them master the basics. Gymnastics basics are incredibly important to master before trying to complete the more technical moves. Some basics that are necessary include:

Forward Roll- Start standing upright then reach for the floor and tuck your chin looking at your belly button and roll coming back up in the same position.somersault

Cartwheel- This move starts in a tall stance, one foot in front of the other. Gymnasts reach down with their hands, side by side and in line with their front leg. They kick their back foot over their head, then kick their front foot. They land with the leg opposite of the one they started with in front.

Backward Roll- This move starts with a tall stance. Gymnasts then squat down on their heels, sit on the mat, roll backward, push off the ground and elevate into a standing position.

Handstand- Gymnasts reach for the ground, extending their legs to the air with their feet “kissing” when the body is vertical and upside down.

Bridge- The bridge starting position is on the back, hands next to the head with fingertips pointing toward the toes. Gymnasts bend their legs and place their feet on the floor and push with their arms and legs. They get their the arms straight and their head off the ground.

Back Bend/Back Bend Kick Over- The starting position is standing with arms straight up by the head. Gymnasts look at their hands and bend backward in a “U” shape until their hands touch the ground. Once this is mastered, they can kick their legs over their head and land on their on their feet in the lunge position.

10 Exercises you can do at home to improve your gymnastics skills

Do you want to help your little gymnast become the very best they can be? These are some at home training drills that can really help them improve without all the gym equipment.

1. Spider-Man against the wall: A hand stand is one of the most common positions in all of gymnastics. To practice this, the spider man against the wall helps practice the correct form for a handstand. Start with you hands on the floor in front of you, and put each foot on a wall. Slowly walk your hands closer to the wall and your feet up the wall until your stomach is against the wall and hold as long as you can. Keep your head neutral but look at your hands with your eyes. While in position, concentrate on tightening all your muscles.
2. Sprints: Sprints are a great way to improve your power and speed for vaults. Sprints can be done anywhere.
3. Splits: Splits are another very common position in gymnastics in leaps and jumps.splits photo

4. Pull-ups: Installing a pull-up bar is a great way to increase upper body strength necessary in gymnastics.
5. Scales: To practice scales, stand on one leg and lift the other leg directly in front of you for a front scale or directly behind you for a back scale. Scales help with flexibility and balance.
6. Jumps: Keep your body tight and jump as high as you can while maintaining body position.
7. Leaps: Leaps are common in floor and beam routines. When practicing, concentrate on keeping the angles of each leg the same, keeping your legs straight and coming as high as you can off the ground.
8. Turns: Turns are also common on floor and beam routines and can be practiced in your socks on carpet or kitchen floors.
9. Conditioning: Any exercise at all is good for gymnastics because gymnastics is a sport that uses almost all of your muscles and the stronger each muscle, the more you are able to do.3 gymnasts

10. Your routine: If you have a gymnastics routine, go through it without the tumbles. This is called a “dance-through.” The more you go over it, the less likely you are to forget it at a meet.
