Developing Gymnastics Strength: Midline
For the next 4 weeks, we will be working on front lever and planche progressions in every Tuesday class.
Levers and planches are a tremendous demonstration of core/trunk strength. They also develop straight arm strength (struggle with the lockout in your snatch?) and strengthen your back and shoulders.
Week 1 (today!) will cover the introduction to the movements & progressions. The following weeks will be based around performing various progressions and holds.
