The best way for you to improve your gymnastics is to learn from people better than yourself. In an effort to help you with this and to get you valuable information, I talked to a bunch of successful gymnasts on Instagram. Being inspired by awesome gymnasts is the best way to stay motivated, so if you’re on Instagram, make sure you follow all the gymnasts below.
One thing that these 6 gymnasts had in common was that they think handstands are an important skill to practice at home. If you want to take their advice and practice handstands more at home, here is a free 7 Day Handstand Challenge starting tomorrow.
