Gymnastics skills don’t just appear. They take work.
WHAT IS CROSSFIT GYMNASTICS? In CrossFit, body-weight movements are considered gymnastics (e.g., air squat, push-up, pull-up, etc.). We are taking skills from the sport of gymnastics and applying them to workouts. In CrossFit, the gymnastics label is applied any exercise in which you move your body through a range of motion (ROM) or extended range of motion (EROM) without an external load. Isometric holds are also considered gymnastics. CrossFit uses short parallel bars (“parallettes”), the floor, still rings, pull-up bars, dip bars, climbing ropes, and other equipment to implement gymnastics training.
In this class we take the time to work on efficiency, strength, skill work before applying momentum and intensity. This is the place you want to be to practice those skills you are still trying to master, and don’t have time to during a WOD.
You will move better, learn new drills and improve your skills in all gymnastics movements that you see in your training.
Make sure you are building your base properly – better gymnastics will mean better weightlifting and better performance.
