The Gymnastics Manual is a very comprehensive and thorough program that can be easily incorporated into daily practice. This manual contains exercises that are fundamental for improving and maintaining mobility, as well as preventing injuries in gymnasts of all ages and abilities. It contains pictures and detailed descriptions on how to perform each exercise, making it straightforward to administer. This manual should be a staple amongst the gymnastics community!

My hips feel way better and looser. My shoulder is not sore anymore, first time in a while since its been sore. I can move it way easier and it doesn’t take 4 or 5 turns on bars to warm it up anymore. It feels good on my first turn.
