Ran across this website browsing the forum:

This is very useful; photo sequences of important gymnastic positions and moves. It's only women's/girl's gymnastics, but then I'd be happy to be able to pull off some of these stunts:

Here is an article on the kip:

And here is a kip photo sequence:

man, thats pretty sweet. i checked out the other skills on the bars and also like the pullover and the cast handstand. ill have to check out the floor skills next...

Eric Moffit 01-17-2005 07:45 PM

yeah...all of the floor skills are sweet

Hmm; I had hoped one of the other women would administer the appropriate smack-down: "ONLY" women's gymnastics? That's a lot of nerve from someone who can't do what they can do...

Pat Janes 01-18-2005 05:46 AM

LOL. I read that and immediately was glad that I wasn't the person that wrote it.

... but I don't think that Ross meant it that way. You have to love the ambiguity of the English language.

Oh, fantastic sequences by the way. Very helpful.

The smack heard round the world. Whooooop tiiiisssssh!!!!:crazy:

Brian Gibson 01-18-2005 06:26 AM

I was thinking the same thing as Pat. :happy:

Lynne Pitts 01-18-2005 07:42 AM

I know,:wink: but it had to be done...

Ross Hunt 01-18-2005 10:27 AM

LOL! I REALLY didn't mean it that way. I just hit upon the link and was disappointed that it didn't have men's skills. HOW cool would photo sequences like that of ring and p-bar skills be?

I'm working on kips and levers. Soon that little 5-year old girl will have nothing on me... except probably a planche. :biggrin:

Fully besmacked,

Ross Hunt

That would be way cool, for sure. Even cooler would be if women got to learn the ring and p-bar, instead of the balance beam.
Look on the bright side, Ross - at least you have a shot at catching up to that 5-year old! I'm 35 years too late...:wink:
