Each gymnast’s training routine and requirements are different, depending on the gymnast’s level, schedule, and goals. A national competitor may do strength training five days per week, as opposed to a recreational gymnast’s program of one day a week. GymnasticStrong recommends two to three days of our strength training which involve a 30-45 minute circuit each session, depending on your level and age. Each circuit (three are instructed in both the Competitive and Youth DVDs) provides a gymnast with a comprehensive workout that includes core, lower body, and upper body strengthening exercises, and the circuits can be completed on a rotating basis. Even if you choose to complete one circuit per week, you will show gains in strength, flexibility, and skill consistency. You take your training into your own hands, and control your own progress. As you will see in GymnasticStrong DVDs, we make different recommendations for different ages, and each DVD is age and skill-level appropriate. You can choose between 'Youth Strength and Stability Training,' 'Competitive and Elite Strength and Conditioning,' 'Dynamic Warmup and Flexibility Training,' 'Core Stability Training,' and 'The Gymnast Evaluation.' With the purchase of a GymnasticStrong DVD or manual, Lauren, a GymnasticStrong professional, can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org at any time to discuss a training plan and schedule at no cost. We want to be involved in a gymnast’s training, and will answer any pertinent questions regarding a gymnast's training plan. Lauren also conducts one-on-one evaluations in person for those who are interested in an individualized program.
