Gymnastics Strength Programs – 5 Must Have Pieces for High Performance

Today on the podcast I am happy to bring to you a lecture I gave for the Nevada Club Congress that was hosted by Cassie Rice at her gymnastics club.

I was asked to come on and talk about some strength and conditioning ideas and principles. 

So this is a lecture on The 5 Must-Do Things to really make a high-performing and effective gymnastic strength program.

I recorded the lecture to share as a lot of people have asked me for these types of lectures. 

I break down having a plan, the need to have a well-balanced program of different movement patterns, how many sets and reps of each exercise, having a specific focus, and the different types of core training you need. 

To finish I talk about having a strong relationship with strength and a good Cultural Foundation to go behind what you’re doing. We discuss:

  • Common strength questions all gymnastic coaches have.
  • Periodization, what is it, and how to use it.
  •  Examples of out off-season strength programs.
  •  What you need to do to achieve a balanced program.
  •  The importance of having a specific goal/focus to your strength program.
  •  Individualization, the key to success.
  • How to develop a strong culture and relationship with strength and conditioning in your gym.
