Hi my little girl has been trying to get her Kip for the longest time and I am at a loss as to what to tell her that will help... she just can’t get on top of the bar at the end and her hips push away from the bar...any suggestions?
As a parent I can confirm this works. However it took me eight months to perfect my leaning technique enough for her to get a muscle up, and another six months to get the jerk perfect enough so she could do a consistent straight armed kip.As a parent if you time your lean and jerk up with the gymnasts movements your parental telekinetic abilities will certainly help propel the little one over the bar.
Not necessarily.And always remember, see will lose it as soon as she gets it for a week-month or whatever but it will happen
I had been practicing the lean and jerk for months. It didn’t seem to help. I haven’t seen a bar practice in weeks and have no idea how things are going!As a parent I can confirm this works. However it took me eight months to perfect my leaning technique enough for her to get a muscle up, and another six months to get the jerk perfect enough so she could do a consistent straight armed kip.
In hindsight, I probably could have saved myself some neck strain and just allowed time, patience, the coach and my kid to do their thing!
Although possibly not? Is it even possible not to lean and jerk a little bit if you arrive for pick up early enough to see your kid yet again being so near yet so far from that elusive kip?
My little one got her kip at the beginning of December BEFORE the stride circle! She is a level 3 and has still not gotten both the shoot through and stride circle in competition. Maybe at states, maybe not. I think I'll try that lean and jerk technique and see if that helps!The "lean and jerk" It's a real skill people! I almost threw my knee out trying to will my kid to get her dumb mill circle.
OP, rest easy knowing you are not alone!
