Tuesday = Open Gymnastics Training, yey!

Unfortunately, every time I throw somersaults recently, it’s ended up with my IT Band getting sore and tight, which causes my knee to hurt and means I end up walking like I’ve been sexually abused. To literally add insult to injury, my shoulder also hurts if I try to train other things like handstands or any calisthenics on the bar like pull ups, muscle ups, front levers, back levers, planches etc. which is grossly inconvenient. Rest I suppose is the only option. At least I filmed this little combination of back tuck, roll back, 1990, swipe dive roll to webster before I surrendered to the pain…

At 2:15 in the video Tata does a gainer entry into a dive roll – coooool, couldn’t wait until the next open gymnastics session!

My and B-Boy Bouncy decided to give this a try, for me it was quite terrifying and still looks no where near as cool as Tata’s, but I think I was actually jumping over the wrong shoulder and making the move A LOT more difficult for myself, oh well, always better to create a new version of what you’re inspired by rather than straight up biting it!
