Here’s what people are saying about the course
Gymnastics Director and
Team Gymnastics Coach
"It's so good to finally find flexibility methods that actually work, are easy to use in the gym, and are safe based on the latest science.
Like other gyms and coaches, we always struggled with flexibility using the more 'old school' approach.
Despite going to tons of lectures and searching online for videos, the flexibility of our gymnasts just didn't seem to budge.
Thanks to Dave's new ideas and all the work he has put in to creating new flexibility systems, life is way easier for us in the gym.
Not only have we seen huge gains in our flexibility by applying Dave's approach, it also gives us a huge peace of mind knowing that what we are doing is safe and in line with the latest science.
Former NCAA Gymnast
I can't recommend Dave and his flexibility programs enough
I was so fortunate to work with Dave after both my shoulder surgery and foot surgery.
Other rehab places I had been before didnt really understand gymnastics flexibility, and how important it was to get back to having lots of shoulder range of motion for bars.
Dave knew exactly what to do to help me not only get back to my previous level of flexibility and power, but make things even better.
Using the programs in Dave's course, I was able to get back to all of my skills on floor, vault, and bars including my Tkachev which originally hurt my shoulder.
I couldn't have done it without him!

"It's crazy how much better our girls flexibility got using these programs
At practice, I used to be so overwhelmed and frustrated when making flexibility programs for our gymnasts.
But now that's completely changed.
I know exactly how to approach our gymnast's warm ups and flexibility circuits, what exercises to do, how long to stretch and what types of other active flexibility drills will work, and how to build a super effective warm up.
I'm all about safety, and keeping the girls uninjured. So after going through the these science based, research proven flexibility programs that use use both stretching or soft tissue work and active flexibility or strength work, our gymnastics across the board just looks safer.
Dave is above and beyond amazing with this stuff, and the right way to do gymnastics flexibility.
I'm so grateful I took this course and am more educated with this new information, because I can give the gymnasts what they need.
What's Inside The Course?
Module 1 - Flexibility Essentials
In this module, we cover exactly what types of stretching, soft tissue care, active flexibility, and strength drills are supported by science to not only be effective but safe. We summarize all the latest science for you, and tell you exactly what it means practically when working with gymnasts
Module 2 - Shoulder Flexibility
In this first practical session, we break down exactly what you need to do if you want to improve overhead shoulder flexibility and behind the back shoulder flexibility. That way, you can have beautiful handstand lines, get those back handsprings, or work the highest level vaults and bar skills. We then cover another section on behind the back flexibility for male gymnasts looking to improve pommel horse, parallel bar, and rings skills.
Module 3 - Right and Left Split Flexibility
This is where things get GOOD. We know that most people want to improve their splits, so take a deep dive and share exactly what works. We talk about how to improve the front and back leg passive flexibility with the best exercises for the hip flexors, quads, inner thighs, and hamstrings. Then we cover tons of great, easy to use active flexibility drills to help get bigger jump/leap angles, straight knees, and powerful bar skills. This is one of the most talked about lectures in the course!
Module 4 - Straddle Split and Pancake Flexibility
Along with right/left splits, we know that many people also want to improve their straddle split and pancake flexibility. So, we keep the ball rolling and discuss the exact stretching, soft tissue care, and active flexibility drills that you can implement right away for the hamstrings and inner thigh muscles. We break down what helps improve straddle vs pancake motions, and how to make changes 'stick'.
Module 5 - Pike Flexibility
The pike position is essential for higher level jumps/leaps, but also for advanced bar skills in both mens and womens gymnastics. It can be tricky to figure out what is limiting an athlete's pike position, so we start by breaking down the stretches to avoid for safety. Then we talk about how to get the hamstrings and core going for a deep pike position that skills require.
Module 6 - Ankle Flexibility
The ankles can be a really tough joint to see flexibility improvements in, and if left alone it can cause huge issues in sprinting speed, beam balance, floor/vault landings, and dismounts. Many people are also looking for a beautiful toe point. So, we cover exactly what can be done to help get both toe point and the 'toes up' motion to improve so that athletes can be safer and have amazing foot form in their skills.
Module 7 - Wrist Flexibility
In gymnastics, the wrists serve as a second set of ankles as we try to do crazy skills on our hands. So many gymnasts struggle with wrist flexibility, and as a result wrist pain, due to this. So, we share exactly what can help to improve flexibility of the wrists for better handstand lines, tumbling, pommel swings, and parallel bar work.
Module 8 - Building and Using Flexibility Programs
This is where the rubber meets the road! Most courses or clinics give you hundreds of great flexibility drills to use, but then when you go back home you're left asking yourself "now what the heck do I do?". We want to make sure you feel FULLY prepared to use the new content from the first modules. So, in this section we talk about building comprehensive warm ups, flexibility circuits, side stations, and recovery periods. You'll know exactly how to start using the new information right away.
Module 9 - Troubleshooting Common Flexibility Problems
We know that flexibility training is no walk in the park, and rarely is it a nice smooth process. There are tons of 'real life' problems that come up. What do you do if someone isn't making flexibility progress? How do we handle growth and puberty? What is 'good' vs 'bad' soreness in stretching? What about gym cultures full of 'old school' ideas or people who aren't open to change? Instead of shying away, we tackle these issues head on and give you practical advice on how to handle them.
Module 10 - Exercise Library, Complex Examples, and More Resources
Like we said, we want you to feel FULLY prepared for any flexibility issues that comes your way. So, we put together a massive collection of stretches, soft tissue drills, active flexibility exercises, strength work, and more for you to check out. We know that not everyone has the same time, equipment, and space, so we wanted to make sure a variety of drills were available for you to use.
To celebrate one of our most anticipated courses, we are offering special bonuses when you sign up!

A Note From Dave
After years of work, I'm so excited to finally launch one of SHIFT's most highly anticipated medical course! I wanted to make sure that I did this right.
So I took extra time to review the research, pick topics that I knew people needed help with, and really break down everything medical providers need to know when working with gymnasts for lumbar spine injuries
Then I took all of my experiences as a gymnast and coach, combined them with the incredible mentorship I've had from of the world leading experts in sports rehabilitation, and also added in my clinical experience form treating 500+ gymnasts with lower back pain.
I promise that you will not regret signing up for this course. I can't wait to see you inside!
