Basics: the common theme in Adult Tumbling.

At our adult gymnastic classes in Bethnal Green E2, we try and get our clients to perform 5 moves: The back and front handspring, the back and front tuck along with the round off.

Whilst we have lots of safe set ups to allow you to have a go at the whole skill, it’s crucial for your training that we develop lots of mini skill circuits. You have to practice the basics as well as do the fun stuff

So,  here is an example of a mini circuit, part of our preparation to develop your  back handspring  in Crossfit London’s  adult Tumbling sessions. Enjoy them. They are building your basics.  Basics build long term success.

Each week we have tumbling  classes on Friday evening and Sunday, early afternoon.

What Shoulder Pain Exercises to Do For Crossfit

3 Tips For Shoulder Pain Exercises to Do For Crossfit

Do you get pain in your shoulders before or during lifting? Maybe some moves like snatches or overhead squats are impossible because of it?

Here are three tips to help relieve your shoulder pain to make it easier easier to lift and prevent further discomfort.

1. Diagnose

First step is to work out: how bad it is? Shoulders are complicated and serious injuries must be treated ASAP.

Ideally ask a physio or doctor friend who can give you a free once over. If it’s anything ligament- or tendon-related you are best to see a registered physiotherapist and do everything they say before moving on to step two. If the pain is just in the muscles, crack on:

2. Relieve

What exerciees can you do to relieve shoulder pain? Chances are pain will be from overuse or tight muscles so anything you can do to relax the muscle will help.

Start by doing some shoulder stretches after every Crossfit or weights session. This will ease out the scar tissue.  – you’ll learn some great examples in our flexibility classes.

Adding in some foam roller work as well will help. Whatever you do:

  • Go light, especially while the shoulders are still sore
  • Get support. Seek the advice of someone who knows what they are doing as well as a partner to stretch with. Having someone else will ensure you don’t push yourself too far and can focus on easing your pain as fast as possible

3. Prevent

Shoulder pain during and after sessions often comes from incomplete recovery. Make sure you stretch after every session as this is the biggest mistake people make – and you don’t want to be one of them.
Second thing you need to do is even out any imbalances, as chances are if you’re experiencing pain it’s from tight shoulders. Work on improving your shoulder flexibility consistently the bridge is ideal for this and looks cool as well!

Adult gymnastics: we deliver dreams

Almost everyone wants to be a gymnast, or at least do a back flip off a bar top in Ibiza. Imagine being in a park with someone checking you out and  simply kicking upto a handstand, holding it, and coming down.
How cool would that be?
At the adult gymnastic sessions in Crossfit London in Bethnal Green E2 , we deliver you the cool things you want. If you have never done gymnastics before ( if you are 18, or 35, or 45, or 60) you’ll be taught in our level 1 classes, how to handstand,  cartwheel,  forward roll, and jump. AT our level 2, you’ll join our level 1 graduates, former child gymnasts, dancers and trickers in learning the drills that will get you a front and back handspring, a front and back tuck, and a round-off. Once you nail those,  it’s off to level 3  to try and glue them together (round off into back flick etc) . Obviously, there are kip ups, and tricking skills to be picked up on the way.
Gymnastics is often only taught to the super talented.  We take everybody as long as you accept you probably won’t be in the Olympics,  but gosh, your kids will be impressed. Imagine that stupid person at work,  raving about going to a spinning class, when you show them your back flick video.
