What do the books cover?
Volume 1 Floor Skills What’s Inside: Volume 1 begins with example warmups and stretches, moving on to cover posture and all basic gymnastics shapes, which are instrumental in performing more complex skills. These skills are then covered in the next sections; ‘Jumps’, ‘Skills’, ‘Rolls’ and ‘Leaps’. Bringing all of these skills together, the book then demonstrates how combined, these skills can be used to create routines.
Volume 2 Pair & Trio Balances What’s Inside: Volume 2 takes some of the skills learned in Volume 1 and incorporates them into pair and trio balances. This book ranges in difficulty from more simple ‘One Foot Stand’ balances, to the very complex ‘Handstand Balances’, ‘Flying Angel’ balances and many more.
Volume 3 Floor Beam What’s Inside: Volume 3 Floor Beam shares with you everything you need to master the essential beam skills, making this challenging piece of equipment achievable. Created primarily for those who own a gymnastics beam, or have a tape/line along the floor to follow. It walks you through basic skills such as mounts and dismounts, walk steps, chasses and bunny jumps, progressing to more advanced skills such as cartwheels, walkovers and levers. Bringing together all of the skills we also provide exciting routines for you to practice.
