kevp951 Posted December 15, 2008 Share Posted December 15, 2008 Hi again guys, As you read above I'm 43 so I don't have years to develop myself. In fact I want to be doing roundoff backtucks by summer, both in the gym and on ground. I want to be able to jump as high as possible because I feel much better about tucking if I have some air. I found some stuff in Coach Sommer's article here: http://gymnasticbodies.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=736&p=2909&hilit=rebound#p2909 At this point I'm just learning the roundoff and I am working on technique to get the best possible rebound height available to me. I have been studying Alex Sayhi on youtube (notice how he keeps looking forward as he tucks) and I am pretty convinced his technique is very good???? (I'm new to this, look him up on youtube and report back to me please) Anyway I'm getting a weighted vest for Xmas with 20 1 pound weights (adj from 0 to 20 lbs, evenly distributed around vest). That and some of coaches book exercises to build a basic strength and a little explosiveness. Where would the vest be best applied??? half squats, jumping on a mini tramp???? coaches deck squats - JUMPING variation wearing the weighted vest (and how much weight to start? )???? Thanks once more for any and all input. p.s. I got my first bucket circles last night with toes fully extended all the way around... still working on the forearm shear tho, it still returns if i try mushroom circles. I am doing russian dips, rice bucket, etc to fix the problem thanks as usual, Kev P Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
