Default A Gymnastics Conditioning Necessity

Front lever pulls are essential for building functional gymnastics strength. You may find the following discussion and accompanying video on front lever pulls interesting.

That is definitely something to work towards. I am actually joining my local gymnastics gym. They have a class for adults where they help you work on anything you want. Strength and conditioning is the name of the class. Coach, I appreciate your posts.

Nick,
I'm having a ton of fun at my adult gymnastics class. We're doing stuff from the U.S. Navy's Gymnastics and Tumbling book, plus some very basic Parkour stuff. Anything we want, really. Enjoy it and stay safe!
