adult gymnastics shapes you'll want to master

Getting better at these adult gymnastics shapes will pay dividends in your training!

Adult gymnastics shapes are the same as shapes for kids - but the conditioning and flexibility training for adults sometimes need to have a slightly different focus in order to accomplish what we want to!

which shapes are we talking about?

The main ones that most adults need help with are:

  • Straight handstand shape
  • Good bridge shape

We also have to look at power development, which is basically just putting these shapes into an explosive action. Examples of this include:

  • Better casting on bars
  • Developing circle elements on bars like a clear hip
  • More powerful tumbling and vaulting

I have a free Adult Gymnastics Shapes E-Course where you will receive one video lesson each week for eight weeks (they are about 10 minutes long apiece). In each lesson you will be shown some exercises that may benefit you and you will be given an assignment for that week.

Yes! I'd love to receive the free course

Fill out this form, and we will send you a new lesson each week for the next 8 weeks!
