On our basket list is to be able to do a sitting back tuck! I have taken gymnastics lessons as a child as well as offered it up when I went to school.
Now as a 25 year old female, I am trying to get back in the game.
It has been difficult getting our flexibility, strength as well as balance back. First, I am out of shape, then second, due to this I am afraid to try a lot of things tumbling related. I have tried working out on our own. I do stretching, balance training as well as have begun weightlifting. I also have been practicing tuck jumps in preparation to achieve our goal. I think I need to take this a step further. I have looked at fitness centers in our city as well as found a personal training a single. I am thinking about taking a group fitness class a few afternoons a month to get back in shape. I need to tone, build muscle as well as get stretchy again, but once I am back in shape, I then can have confidence to try our tumbling out. I will start slow with doing mainly handstands, bridge as well as splits, and then I can transport into back handSpringtimes, walkovers as well as maybe transport into tucks again. But, that is a long ways away. I noticed that the gym does want the customers to list their goals. I wonder if I say I want to be able to tumble again as well as achieve a sitting tuck, what they would do. I bet they would labor on our butt, leg as well as ab muscles to assist with this dream. It absolutely wouldn’t hurt telling the personal trainer what the end goal is.
