4 Simple But Effective Gymnastics Drills to Do at Home

We know everyone is stuck at home these days so we’ve put together a video of a few of our most effective SkillTrakker drills that you can practice at home.

Watch the videos below to learn how to do each of the drills.

You can do all of these drills in one day to make it a workout or just use them as ideas to add to your current gymnastics workout routine.

Here they are:

Number 1: Knee to Releve Holds

You can do this on a beam or on the floor. Start on one knee with your dominant foot in front of you. Push to stand (you should be on your dominant leg) and hold a relevé on one foot with the other foot at your knee or ankle. Try to hold this position with your shoulders down and your arms in a crown position. Remember to keep your ankle straight and not sickled as you hold your passe. Repeat.

Number 2: Open Shoulder Push-Up Hops

Get in an open shoulder push-up position with your arms covering your ears. Try to hop your your body forwards 5 times, then backwards 5 times, then sideways 5 times, then to the other side 5 times. Do 10 times each for intermediate or 15 times each for advanced.

Number 3: Tuck Opens to Handstand

Squat down and put your hands in front of you on the ground. Tuck your legs in and and then push them straight up to handstand. Then lower your feet to the ground passing through the same tuck position and landing in a squat. Repeat 10 times in a row.

Number 4: Lunge T Lunge

Start in a lunge. Lift your back leg, while bringing your arms and upper body forward to horizontal to make the shape of a “T”. Try holding it for 2 seconds (beginner), 5 seconds (intermediate) or 7 seconds (advanced) while squeezing your leg muscles, trying not to wobble & keeping your back foot pointed, and then return to a lunge. Do it 5 times in a row.
