"I've been using the dynamic warmup on 2 out of 3 of our weekly gymnastics practices since the workshop in Swan River (Bowsman) in January. My choice to use it 2/3 of the time was to evaluate it, to some degree, and to see if my athletes noticed a difference...The difference has been noticeable, not only to me and my gymnasts, but also to their parents! I've noticed that it really has improved their vault approach/takeoff power. The girls have begun to request it on the nights when we do the standard (competition style) warmup. As for their parents, I'm getting questions as to what it is that we're doing differently, and one of the parents commented last week that her daughter (age 10, 60 lbs), ate SIX whole pancakes for supper after practice! My approach with this has been to 'pick 6 from the bag of tricks', using variety and mixing them up from practice to practice. I absolutely love it, and am so appreciative of the clinic!"
