Yeah MAN! I run and just like flip at home haha. Sometimes if im inspired I'll do pullups. But I guess gymnasticsbabie you already know that. haha

oh and hammy I love rock climbing! Theres a gym near me so I'll go sometimes when I don't have gymnastics or anything.

Yes, I work out at home. I will do like crunches or push-ups in my room. When my BFF comes over we go for bike rides and we like to take walks. Sometimes I'll run around with my dog at the park too. I haven't as much lately but before I had a work-out all planned out and I did it every day to get strength back because I was hurt. (I broke all 10 toes, my left ankle, and I had bone bruising in both heels- landed on cement after RO 3 BHS Back tuck if you were wondering) I am going to start running on the weekends because I joined track.

I forgot to say how often. I don't really have as much time anymore. I have track, cheerleading, ASB (I'm VP for my class), key club, yearbook, and gymnastics. Plus my homework which has been fairly light lately, lucky me!

SO i went back to gymnastics feelin pretty goooood! lol jk

I only do gym 2/3 times a week. I work out tues/thurs/sat/sun right now, but track starts in a week, so it'll be every day. I lift weights, run and bike for now. Pilates sometimes too.

i work out everyday for 3 hours outside of gymnastics. it helps to keep my body in good shape and helps prevent me from getting injuries.

My daughter works out M-F 6-8 am and 2:30-6pm and sat. 8-12 during the school year and 8-3:30 M-F over the summer. I don't know how she could fit more in at home. She does follow a workout schedule during family vacations. When she was younger she flipped where ever she could find the space but now she doesn't want to risk injury so tumbling outside the gym is rare.
