    USAG enforcing leotard policy

    Man, this is bad timing. Our gym got new Leo last year but they were messed up by GK so they had to get new ones again this year and they have open backs so we're going to have to pay for another new Leo.

    Splits and Stretching

    Help With Splits

    My advice is to keep on pushing your limits and stay consistent. I also would advise that you go to Alivia D'andrea's youtube channel, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChIjQmxk48Fn8UYdJH2NaoQ she has flexibility videos for everything. I wish you good luck!

    I want to move up.

    I wish that was possible, but gymnasts come from all over the county to train at our gym because we are the only gym in the area.

    I need to heal my rip overnight.

    I have a clinic tomorrow and I need for my rip to heal overnight. This is really important because we only have one three hour clinic a year at my gym. Please provide me with the fastest ways to heal a rip.

    I want to move up.

    I want to move to JO from Xcel, (I had to do Xcel because I started gym midway through the year, and started when I was 13.) I don't know if it is possible though.
