Hey Everyone, I'm working on buying some mats for my garage right now and I've narrowed it down to either a 1-1/4" thick or a 1-5/8" thick Tatami mat. I'm using these for GST and movement work with no grappling. Is there much of a difference between those thicknesses? Or is the cheaper the better? Thanks, Max
Hey everyone, I was at open gym the other week and asked the coach to take a look at my manna. I always worked my manna on the floor, as that's what I've always seen on gymnasticbodies, but the coach actually told me I should be training the manna on pbars. He told me it's actually easier on pbars. However, when I went to try it on the pbars, I could barely lift my hips to a v-sit position (feet pointing to the ceiling) whereas on the floor I'm entering my last stretch to achieving the manna. The coach summed it up to me actually "cheating" the manna on the ground my leaning back and compensating with the forearm strength I've amassed from ring training. So my question is, how does our wonderful Coach here at gymnasticbodies approach this? Is the manna on pbars harder or easier than the manna on floor? Which should I be working? P.S. I'll try to get a good picture of my manna on the floor to post.
Hello I finally got myself pair of blocks to do handstands on. How much time should i spend on blocks work vs floor work? On floor, i can do 60s freestanding handstand easily, I'm focusing on OAHS preparation (flexibility, flags, weight shifting etc.) and i hope that blocks will help me with that.
