    Great! Simple as that. Thanks @Giulio Pizzini, that was all I requested.

    Thomas, as far as I can see you can still go to the old link and find your history: https://my.gymnasticbodies.com/videoreview/ Just don't send new videos because they will not be reviewed

    Video review page on new website?

    Sorry coach. I understand that the private review service is no more. That was obvious and I have no problem using the forum instead. My question was regarding the review history. As I mentioned, it contained valuable information for me.

    No need to ask the same question three times in a row, people. Private video reviews have been discontinued. Yours in Fitness, Coach Sommer

    Is there some way to restore the private reviews or are they gone forever? That review history contained a lot of valuable information for me.

    Layout + twist

    HI Eloy, first of all, consider that usually, we do not manage tumbling skills development of this type on the forum because there is a serious risk of injury. personally, i believe that in case of poor spine conditioning and hips mobility the stress is transferred all over the lower back. so my suggestion is developing first FOUNDATIONS up to the 4th at least for legs progression and core development. then you can begin to think about tumbling seriously.

    Layout + twist

    Hi guys, I know some of you are gymnastics coaches and some of you do tumbling too. Do you have any drills for good layouts? I'm very bad at those, I mean, I do it wrong and sometimes my lower back muscles are sore after the training because either I overuse them or I don't use them at all. I wish I could train my layouts without soreness so maybe you can give me some tips or drills to keep good muscle activation. I can do a full hour of tumbling with tucks and pikes (twisting too) without problem but layouts... leave my body like trash. This is related to twisting. Some of the old tumblers I train with recommend me to develop good layout because they find it the easiest body form for twisting.

    Painful Quad (above knee) - advice how to proceed

    Marko, first question I would ask is if you are heel-striking or doing a mid-foot strike when running/jogging? The way your foot makes contact on the ground and the kinds of shoes you are wearing (wedged, arc-support, etc.,) may be creating misalignment issues up the leg. If you were to run in place, you will notice you will be running on your mid-foot (toes) and then all you have to do is lean slightly forward and you will start moving forward. This straight alignment, with the forward lean happening at your ankles (not your back) will correct most running-related issues. I recommend reading the books The Pose Method , Born to Run and 80/20 Running to self-diagnose. Maybe also go get seen by a physical therapist to see if you have any issues that cannot be visually discerned.

    Getting Rid Of Lower Back Pain

    Hey Alessandro, Thank you for your points. I reviewed my technique on the seal stretch, and found out there was a lot of room for improvement. Since doing the technique the pain reduced quite a lot while doing the exercise. I will see if I can get in touch with a PT so he can check me up. Thank you.

    Getting Rid Of Lower Back Pain

    On some range of motion like the seal variation, the lower back can hurt a bit and in this case it quite normal. Doing strength exercises that hurt means that with the current technique they hurt...but what about technique? is it correct? Core work in your case (probably lower back flexed can make the condition worse) should be carefully planned. For your case, due to strong PPt the hamstring variation of the Front split course should be done with little bent knees. Said that, if you check a PT and you have a decent diagnosis about WHAT is particularly tight in your hips I can help you definitely more.

    Getting Rid Of Lower Back Pain

    I understand, but this doesn't answer any of my questions. I am doing all 3 stretch courses. What about this: "My ideas for how to fix this: 1. Be patient. I've had an entire lifetime to build these deficiencies, it will take a good amount of time for it to get better. 2. Stop doing any exercises that hurt me. 3. Start adding some core work in between, to strengthen my glutes and abdominal muscles. 4. Start adding some more hamstring mobility exercises. Which ones I don't know yet. 5. Do the seal stretches on my elbows, as recommended by Coach Sommers in this post. "

    Developing the pike: Front split GB course. Developing the middle split: middle split GB curse. developing the spine extension: thoracic bridge GB course.

    Fortnightly Training Schedule

    Second this. Either that or just an option to move workouts to other days in an easier manner (like a "move to another day" function) to move everything in one batch. Right now you have to individually move each class/course if you want to do them on a different day and have them marked as done. Would be nice in case you missed a day and want to do it the next day. All and all a minor issue. The new setup is definitely awesome.

    Getting Rid Of Lower Back Pain

    Hello @Alessandro Mainente, thank you for your reply. I don't understand what to do with your suggestions though. Should I do the seal stretch on the elbows then? What about thoracic extension? And how to develop the Pike position? And what about the ideas I posted on my initial post? Thank you for your help.

    Rings

    Rings

    The official size of a competitive gymnastics ring is 1.1in which is 27.94mm or basically 28mm. The official size of a competitive mens olympic lifting bar is 28mm. Note that the largest super heavy weight olympic lifter competes with the same 28mm bar as the smallest weight class. Larger athletes do not compete with larger diameter bars. The same rule applies to gymnastics ring size. The urban myth of needing a larger diameter ring for larger athletes is simply something that has been propogated by the uninformed. The size of the athlete has nothing to do with the size of the ring used. Get the 1.1in. Yours in Fitness, Coach Sommer

    Rings

    So what is the size that I should train with 1.11in or 1.25in?

    Great suggestion. I agree that that would be a nice addition and the developers do look at the feedback posted here so thank you.

    Fortnightly Training Schedule

    Is there any chance you can add a two week training schedule option? I run and do other activities and itd be great if I could plan my training across two weeks instead of one. Id like to be able to do three upper body and core sessions across two weeks as opposed to changing the schedule each week to accommodate.

    Foundations vs Elements 1

    Thanks Bill! That was some of the confirmation I was looking for. This week I've just been completing my Foundations...and then doing a workout afterward! I realize you need to start at the beginning. I just didn't want to still be doing 6 reps of wall pushups and half squats 2 months from now!

    Long head of the tricep

    It works on both the situation BUT as the latissimus dorsi work, the tricep is less involved. the more you move the hands behind the hips the less the lats work and this is the reason of why here you can work more on them. Notice that if you do the shoulder extension like in the front lever rarely you can fatigue the tricep soon. on the other side if you perform the first cm of manna lift you can immediately have tricep cramps.

    Getting Rid Of Lower Back Pain

    Hi Tiago probably, there are some elements very important. -strong PPT -flexed lumbar spine -years of sitting. All of these things are related to short hamstring, glutes, abs. Said that: 1) seal stretch is IMPORTANT, is essential. 2)restoring thoracic extension is not IMPORTANT, is essential 3)developing a good middle split means a very good spine extension, essential for your locked lower back; 4) you MUST DEVELOP the pike position.
