Welcome back to the fourth edition of our gymnastics blog posts! In this blog post, we hope to give you drills that will help emphasize your ability to pull-down, maintain a hollow body position, and pull over onto the bar. We recommend selecting 2-3 drills and doing them 1-2 times a week (preferably when you’re relatively fresh).
We hope to see you next week for our final gymnastics clinic on Handstand Push Ups. We will leave this little video of our finale group game in order to entice you to come to our Handstand clinic
|Banded Pull Down||2×10||Lat strength, explosive hip drive, tension throughout the body|
|Banded Front Lever||3×4||Lat strength, reinforce hollow position during kip|
|Kipping Hip Pop Drill||2×3 ||explosive hip drive, controlled swing|
|Box Sliders||2×8||tension throughout the body|
|Strict Hammock Muscle Up Drill ||4×2||Strict strength, movement pattern of the transition |
|Dynamic Get out of the Pool Drill ||4×2||Movement pattern of the transition, aggressive hip drive and pull down|
The drills listed below require assistance from a willing coach. While this spotting drill can be done at any part of your BMU journey, it might be best to ask coach for help once you feel you are on the precipice of getting a BMU, or once you are down to a final red band. At this point, you may have the adequate strength for the BMU and just need help feeling the movement pattern.
