Re: Gymnastics CF hybrid?

As far as how often you should be doing it depends on what your goals are with gymnastics. For really developing in the sport 4 days a week is not much. The bulk of the time in a gymnastics gym is skill development. Repetitions, drills and so forth. If you have a good CF base you're starting off far better than most. The CF principles applied to gymnastics focused condition works well. Be sure to work some heavy low rep work on the key strength skills (HSPU, press to handstand, etc) to build sport specific strength. The biggest factor in doing a substantial gymnastics program as well as keeping up with CF is time. You can suppliment gymnastics with CF, or suppliment CF with gymnastics but it's difficult to do both full bore.
