The handstand drills book, in particular, has been invaluable in teaching my gymnasts about basic body tightness and control as well as the handstand. Each books contains such a wide variety of drills that I can pick and choose the ones that are best for my gymnasts and tailor them to our needs. FABULOUS BOOKS!"

Contents of this Gymnastics Drills and Conditioning Book
There are over 100 drills and conditioning exercises in this book!
These gymnastics drills and conditioning exercises will help speed the learning process and better prepare the gymnast physically and mentally for skills, series, and routines. When these gymnastics drills are performed frequently and consistently the gymnast becomes accustomed to performing the correct shapes and the correct sequence of muscle contractions necessary for certain gymnastics skills. Even the best coach in the world, Bela Karolyi, believes in using drills to teach and refine skills. He reminded the coaches to continue implementing gymnastic drills on a daily basis during coaches meetings at his Camp. (Karen Goeller, the author, was among those coaches and was his first female camp director.)
Every gymnast must master the gymnastics skills addressed in this gymnastics drills and conditioning book. The topics include Running, Vaulting, Dance, Uneven Bars, and Press Handstand. In the bars section there are drills for the glide kip, cast handstand, and clear hip circles while in the dance section there are drills and conditioning for split leaps and the hip flexor muscles to help with the straddle jump and glides on uneven bars.
The best way to ensure your gymnast's safety is to condition their body and mind to perform each movement involved in the gymnastic skill and then condition them to perform the entire skill without interruption. These gymnastic drills and conditioning exercises help the coach and gymnast through the transition into new and exciting skills. They were used to produce several successful gymnasts, including NY State Champions, Empire State Games Competitors, National TOPS Team Athletes, College Gymnasts, and National Champions among other successful athletes.

Although these gymnastic drills and conditioning exercises have proven challenging to gymnasts of all levels, they are most useful to developing gymnasts. These gymnastic drills are also very useful to those gymnasts of higher levels with gaps in their training. Many higher level gymnasts have specific needs, such as the need to retrain basic skills or increase specific skill strength and flexibility.
Offer your gymnasts a well rounded and proven training system with the gymnastic drills and conditioning exercises in this gymnastics book. And be sure to use the gymnastic drills and conditioning exercises in an appropriate way for the best results. For example, use cast handstand drills while on bars and dance drills while warming up balance beam or on floor exercise.
From preschool to the competitive levels these drills are often the common denominator for a safe and productive training program.
