Tumbl Trak: Homenastics - Tumbling Mat

I know not everyone has a panel mat at home but most of the skills included do not require a panel mat.  Most skills are pretty basic but for those gymnasts with siblings I'm sure they would love to be a coach.  If they try to make their brothers and/or sisters go do rope climbs I apologize.

Tumbl Trak is hosting daily Homenastics workouts on their Facebook page.  Follow the link to learn more. Tumbl Trak Facebook

Splits and Handstands

Splits - go through left, right, and middle splits two times, holding each split for 1 minute.  **front toes pointed, back knee is facing the ground and back heel is to the ceiling, hips remain square and they are not resting on their front leg**

Handstands - 2 minute total handstand and wall handstands. **(one gymnastics, two gymnastics, three gymnastics) Only counting while holding the handstand.  Each time they come out of a handstand the counting stops and when they kick back into handstand the counting begins again.  Wall handstands can be done with their back and stomach against the the wall.**

How many places can you find to split?

Splits - For left and right leg splits.  Pick a leg to start with, place the heel of the front foot on the couch and the knee of the back foot on the ground.  Keeping the hips square and front leg straight and toes pointed reach out and try to touch your chest to your front leg.  Hold for 30 seconds and switch legs, do 2-3 sets on each leg.  Regular middle splits this week.  Tip: for your middle split do them against the wall so your heels, back of legs, and bottom are against the wall as to keep a nice straight line.
