Gymnastic movements are some of the most advanced and difficult exercises that athletes perform. To execute these skills correctly requires strength, stability, balance, and coordination. That being said, we are excited to bring back the Arsenal Gymnastics Course! Athletes will learn to perform various exercises and skills (e.g., Squat, Pistol, Pushup, Handstand Pushup, Pull-up, Muscle-up, etc.) with mechanically sound technique, adopting positions that enable greater expressions of strength.
WHAT WILL THIS PROGRAM LOOK LIKE?
This course is designed to educate athletes regarding the safe, efficient and effective biomechanics and positions associated with body-weight movements. We are offering two levels to accommodate each athlete and their ability levels.
Level I will focus on developing the baseline strength required to perform basic gymnastics skills such as pull-ups, pushups, pistols, holds, splits, and rope Climbs.
*Level II will focus on developing the butterfly kip, handstand pushups and walks, as well as ring & bar muscle-ups.
*In order to test into the Level II course athletes MUST schedule a time to meet with a coach and complete the requirements listed below. Please use THIS LINK to schedule your time.
