Exercises to Build Strength
Conditioning exercises are used to help gymnasts develop muscles and strength properly. If they bulk up muscles in the wrong areas of their bodies, they will be heavier than they need to be and will not be able to balance as well. These videos show exercises that will build shoulder strength properly so that the muscles develop in the back near the shoulders properly.
Gymnasts need flexibility as well as strength to perform their routines. That’s why developing muscle power in the right parts of the body are so important. Some types of bulky muscles would work against flexibility. That’s why it’s important to work with a trainer who knows the correct ways to condition for gymnastics.
