      I am an eleven year old gymnast. I am in 8th level and I had the same problem as your daughter. For starters, has she tried using grounded up chalk? All you need is a little bit of it and it works great. The only problem with that is it will stain your bars and be scratchy but you can wash it off with a washcloth occasionally. The only other thing I can think of is using bar grips for her hands. I use them often but they do create blisters if on too long.

    What are leg cuts?

  • anonymous March 18, 2020, 7:40 pm

    It’s usually called a cut in or a cut out sometimes even a cut in-cut out if they are connected. It’s when you move your arm out of the way and put your leg over the bar (for a cut in) or move your arm out of the way to move your leg off of the bar (cut out)

    I am a self taught gymnast but the good part is I’m able to because I have floor mats, a bar, and a beam.
    So since it was the new year I did a planner to try to do certain skills on certain days from easiest to hardest, not including the thing I already know how to do. I’m going to try to do a back layout by 1/27/21.
