Gymnastic movements tend to be some of the most frustrating exercises that we perform. To execute them correctly, they require a tremendous amount of strength, balance, coordination, and stability. That is why we are so excited to introduce to you our CrossFit Ellis Gymnastics Course! Participants will learn to perfomr various exercises and skills (e.g., push-up, handstand push-up, pull-up, muscle-up, etc.) by creating mechanically sound techniques and developing positions to enable a greater expression of strength.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:
INCREASED BODY POSITIONING AND AWARENESS
One of the most essential elements of gymnastics is moving our body freely yet controlled. Meaning if we can’t correctly kip or hold a handstand, how can we expect to get a pull-up, muscle-up, or handstand push-up.
ACCESSORY AND SKILL WORK THAT DIRECTLY TRANSLATES TO STRENGTH GAINS AND LONG-TERM HEALTH
You hear this in class repeatedly, but without the appropriate strength to do strict movements, we should not be worrying about advanced kipping movements. Instead, we should improve our lat and shoulder strength, keeping us healthy and happy in the long run.
FINE-TUNING SKILLS THAT INCREASE SPEED AND EFFICIENCY IN WORKOUTS
You’ve probably heard the saying Slow is Smooth, Smooth is Fast. Moving too fast and rushing increases the chance of mistakes, which ultimately slows you down. Moving carefully and deliberately with a mind of the technique will help reduce fumbling and needless mistakes.
