Developmental Twisting Part 8.
Wow- It has been a LONG series of posts to get to here. Certainly not a complete list of drills.
We like to teach all twisting on tramp in 1/4 increments. EXAMPLE: In order for a gymnast to know where a 1 1/2 is to punch front or step out of, they need to know where 1 1/4 is to prepare to punch.
This video shows a gymnast twisting up. Doing a layout 1/1 twist and then doing jump 1/4 turns. In the course of twisting I believe that it is important to also twist back down. This is another thing we do to help kids from getting “the twisties”
