Master Your Bodyweight in 4 Not So Easy Steps
Do you lack talent? Or are you simply lacking the right tools? Most people have the work ethic but don’t have the correct progressions. The secret to fast-tracking your strength and mobility progress will be with a straightforward and thoroughly vetted GymnasticBodies system by your side. Think of it this way: champions do not take unnecessary risks with their most precious training tool, their body, and neither should you.
After a 40-year stint of coaching gymnastics at the National level, Coach Christopher Sommer has shifted gears to tailor his training methods to fit adult bodies. His efforts can be seen in the creation of the GymnasticBodies Courses, which provide the blueprint for attaining the strength and flexibility of a gymnast.
The secret formula behind GSTTM methods lies within the simplicity of its approach. In this post, you will uncover the path of a GB athlete on their quest to becoming one of the strongest, most powerful beings in the world.
Step 1: Rebuild the Mobility of Your Youth
Mobility is the most under-trained component of fitness by most adults. The truth of the matter is that if we do not maintain the use of our bodies through mobility and strength exercises then we will inevitably become frail and brittle.
Does the saying “If you don't use it, you lose it” come to mind?
By adding mobility and stretching exercises to your workouts you can earn back the flexibility of your youth and drastically improve the health of your muscles and joints. As an added benefit, you will also embrace your inner child as you play with fun and exciting gymnastic movements.
Incorporating this unique and effective gymnastic movement into your GB Training will surely open up the doorway to the fountain of your youth.
Step 2: Build a Functional Core
The concept of “core training” is easily misunderstood in the fitness world. Your core comprises your entire midsection and acts as a 360° corset-like back brace to stabilize your spine during physical activity.
To build functional core strength you must train all of the muscles in your core, including your abs, lower back, and obliques. This is best done by training a variety of exercises that will specifically target each muscle group.
The GB Foundation Series will kick your “core training” into high-gear for a major upgrade to your core workout. Armed with a wide variety of exercises that train your entire midsection, our gymnastics online workouts will give you functional core strength to go along with those crazy 6-pack abs.
Step 3: Develop a Strong Foundation of Strength
Once you have primed your body, the next step on your journey will be to establish a solid foundation of superhuman strength. Up until this stage of your training, you have been rebuilding your body’s joint mobility and core strength so that you can maximize your GST gains.
Many gymnastic exercises, like the hollowback press (article header image), demonstrate not only high levels of strength and power but also excellent shoulder and hip mobility. With the training tools from our GB Courses, you too can learn to develop the mobility and strength to perform at your greatest potential.
Step 4: Unleash Your Athleticism with Dynamic Strength
Your fourth and final step is to develop dynamic strength and power, the meat and potatoes of Gymnastic Strength TrainingTM. Developing power through dynamic movements requires a perfect balance of mobility and strength in your muscles and joints.
This crucial step in your Gymnastic Bodies training is the key to unlocking your athletic potential. Many GB students that have made it this far have realized that dynamic strength is just the beginning our their journey to achieve bodyweight mastery. Equipped with a variety of training tools from the GB Online Courses, you will be free to explore your body's dynamic abilities.
