There are some good video sets from American Gymnast and GymSmarts, but I'm not sure if you care about all events, men's and women's or principally strength training/physical preparation and phasing.

Most of the gymnastics material out there is either specialized by event or skill, gender. From the books I've seen there isn't anything you're looking for. There is some very specialized stuff about scientific studies and the physics involved or it so very broad and basic it is only good to a beginning or intermediate coach and generally only covering those levels. Very few will go over progressions per skill instead just listing off a skill with perhaps cues to mastery.

Taking a look at what's on the web, I can't find anything bookwise and I'm not sure if the available video series are what you are looking for. Wait and hope for Coach Sommer's book.
