01 Mar 2016 – Introducing: Your Midline

It's not as easy as it looks...

Developing Gymnastics Strength: Midline

What?
For the next 4 weeks, we will be working on front lever and planche progressions in every Tuesday class.

Why?
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.

How?
Week 1 (today!) will cover the introduction to the movements & progressions. The following weeks will be based around performing various progressions and holds.

Enjoy!
