Gymnastics requires a high degree of flexibility. There are certain areas of the body where gymnasts often develop tension and stiffness. A major limiting factor for our flexibility can be our fasciae. Fascia training, paired with selected mobilisation exercises, can have a positive effect on mobility and support regeneration.

You can treat yourself to a soothing fascia massage both before and after a training session. This will help to prevent imbalances and compensations.
Areas of the body that tend to stiffen in gymnasts
  • Calf muscles
  • Hip flexor muscles
  • Lower back
  • Thoracic spine
What you should pay attention to during training
  • Slow pace of execution
  • Calm breathing (the exhalation may be slightly longer than the inhalation)
  • Relax the muscles
After every training session

Do these exercises for gymnasts before or after every training session to improve your flexibility and prevent imbalances.
