    Keeping up with flexibility?

    So, as most of you probably know, I stopped gymnastics about 2 months ago. So far, I have the same amount of flexibility (and even increased pike from diving!) but I'm worried that it will decrease. Any ideas for keeping it up? I thought it would be cool to join a contortion class, but those are...

    My suggestion was for if they were to create a similar rule for rg, it would be better to do something like this than have a biketard IMO. I prefer regular leos too, and I don't know how much it would help, but it's better than a biketard, at least for rg. Also, these are already a thing. I saw...

    even for rhythmic gymnastics, they could do something like this : I know the girls at the local rhythmic gym wear leggins during practice (not for this reason), and it seems to work really well for them from a gymnastics point of view, so it probably wouldn't present a grip problem or...

    Quitting Gymnastics to do Pole vaulting ? :(

    Oh, also, during the summer I train at a gym at my grandmother's house, and I think I will continue doing gymnastics at least during the summer.

    Quitting Gymnastics to do Pole vaulting ? :(

    Hey everyone. Thanks for the answers. So, I have decided that, at least for now, I'm going to take a break from gymnastics (that way, if I really hate it I can return). I will be doing diving, and potentially another sport in the spring, as well as Pole vaulting. I achieved all my goals and...

    Quitting Gymnastics to do Pole vaulting ? :(

    I am thinking about making a difficult decision. Let me give you the background. I'm a freshman in high school. I do xcel gymnastics. I love it, and I could compete level 7-8 if I were in JO. I placed 2nd all around in region 6 as platinum. But there is no way that I could do this for college...

    Pit cleaning

    When we cleaned it (and put in new foam) we took everything out, vacuumed, fluffed the mats at the bottom and put everything back in. Took about 2 hours w/ about 30 kids.

    You're totally right. It is sometimes necessary to hold a patient down. My point was everything else should be tried before that becomes necessary (i.e. if they're having trouble (like feeling nervous, not in hysterics like daughter above), they should try to talk to them first,) but maybe I...

    You're right, I'm not a parent. And vaccines are certainly essential, and you're right about the bolded part. I was discussing holding down for a shot, with no relation to this. And your daughter is probably different than my brother, so let's agree to disagree. Your child your choice

    Teen cheerleader forced to do splits article

    Maybe your kid was different, but my brother needs to get medicine through a needle (IV style) and the doctors had to give him a vaccine. Until that point, he was alright with vaccines because they always took it calmly, but they held him down one time and now he has a fear of needles which is...
