After three yeas as a floor specilist, I've finally gotten new grips and decided to start training all six events again.

Anybody else ever do anything like this? Like, stop doing an event (or stop training altogether) for a few years and then get back into it? How did it go?

If you can't help financially... tell a friend about us!

I stopped at 18...I was better at 21 with no practice. I forget how old you are...but if your 19-22 (23, 24...maybe 25) you shouldn't have too much of a problem. After that (I'm 28), it gets tougher. Things pull, twist, and tear much easier.:mad:

Did a flyaway off highbar today for the first time in four years, overcomming a massive mental block (I landed on my head doing a double back four years ago and hadn't done a flyaway off bars since. Until tonight)

Still not doing it from a giant, and still not doing doubles, but hey, it's a start.
