Weighted Circles, Flares, And Related

Recommended Posts

jamesters

Do you think training circles, flares, or related skills with weights is beneficial or might it throw off the technical aspect of the skills. I was thinking either ankle weights or a weighted belt.

Simply put, train with more extension and shoulder lean and you will increase the load on the lever. No need to add weight.

This.

If your body isn't perfectly straight in your circles why add weight? Just straight out and do the circles faster..

With the flairs if your legs aren' split apart and hips aren't to shoulder height then fix that instead of working weights...

Once you have developed at least a medium quality circle/flair; adding very light weights to the ankles (1/4 lb or so) and a weighted belt (1-2 pounds) can be very beneficial when implemented as a station of three circles or so inbetween your primary turns on the pommel horse without weights.

Yours in Fitness,
