Gymnastics: 1hr30
– Floor work: stretch, splits, bridge, handstands, rolls, extensions, cartwheels, front limber, back walkover
– Tumble track: jumps, front handsprings, back handsprings, roundoff back handspring
– Handstand press work
– Splits

Front handspring is doing great. Back handspring not so much. I did this middle spli thing where you put your chest on the ground. Not comfortable. It’s kind of like a pancake, but more painful.

Parallettes Work Phase A
1. Plank Jump to Dip: 3 sets x 4 reps
2. Tuck Swing to Top Plank: 3 sets x 4 reps
3. Tuck Hold: 3 sets x 4 reps, 3 -5s holds
4. Tuck Swings: 3 sets x 4 reps

That was hard even with the reduced reps. Floor day is so much easier. Oddly enough, the tuck swings were the easiest.

Straddle Practice:
– Side Split: 10 min video
– Middle Split: 8 minute video

Tried that chest to the ground middle split again. I got 9.5 inches off the ground with that stretch. I’ve progressed a lot in my middle split!
