Layout + twist

Eloy Bote

Recommended Posts

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.

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.
