Why You Need a Gymnastics Foundation

We all understand that you can’t run before you can walk, and you can’t walk before you can stand, but often people don’t know the requisite foundation that must precede more complex movements in fitness. Most individuals are unsuccessful when trying to develop gymnastics skills, movement flows, freestyle movement, and more complex bodyweight exercises mainly because they have not developed their foundation of strength and mobility. Instead, as you’ve probably heard me mention many times before, people start doing more complex exercises too early on in their training. No Olympian got to where they are by jumping ahead to the top tier. They spent hours upon hours developing their abilities layer by layer. You can’t expect to be any different.
