Thursday 180607 Gymnastics Skills and Drills

In the introduction to Gymnastics & Tumbling the authors explain that “Gymnastics and Tumbling is included in the Naval Aviation Physical Training Program because of the strength and skills that are developed through participation in this sport. These include improvement of upper body strength, and training in quick and correct decision and action. Since there is no other activity to develop full upper body strength, agility and balance this sport occupies a prominent place in the Naval Aviation Training Program.”

Essential to the CrossFit concept is balanced competency in the ten general physical skills: cardiovascular/ respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. Gymnastics has no peer among training modalities for developing the four neurological components of the ten skills—coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy.

In our Santa Cruz, CA, facility, our better athletes play with and practice basic gymnastics movements regularly if not daily. We have parallel bars, rings, mats, and a pommel horse set up at all times. – Greg Glassman in Gymnastics and Tumbling (CrossFit Journal)
