4 Simple But Effective Gymnastics Drills You Can Do At Home

NUMBER 1: KNEE TO RELEVE HOLDS

You can do this on a beam or on the floor. Start on one knee with your dominant foot in front of you. Push to stand (you should be on your dominant leg) and hold a relevé on one foot with the other foot at your knee or ankle. Try to hold this position with your shoulders down and your arms in a crown position. Remember to keep your ankle straight and not sickled as you hold your passe. Repeat.
