Athlete Warrior Tumbling and Trampoline
Item Number: 2441
This workbook is for the optional gymnast who is ready to take their mental training to the next level. They should already be familiar with sport psychology and enjoy thinking "deep". Mental training is no different than physical training. It takes time, commitment, and discipline. Too many gymnasts train an amazing amount of hours physically without ever attending to mental training. All fear, frustration, inconsistency, competition stress, discouragement, anxiety, and anger stems from out of control thinking. Out of control thinking leads to out of control performance. This workbook will help gymnasts discipline their minds just as they discipline their bodies. Mental training is not for "head cases". It is for any gymnast that is committed enough to be her very best.
The exercises in this workbook are aimed to help the gymnast maintain correct mental technique or what we call "tight mind". We define "tight mind" as "in the zone"; feeling confident, effortless, relaxed, excited, and focused. Disciplining the mind takes practice. Just as any gymnast works on maintaining correct technique, pulling the body back to perfection when it is off, disciplining the mind takes the same pain-staking effort.
The Athlete Warrior is for a gymnast that can think deep and is 100% committed to mental training. The foundation of this workbook is Eastern philosophical mind training. The training monks and martial artists are known for. It will not only change an athlete's gymnastics, but change the way they look at life.

Trampoline Drills for ALL Gymnastics Disciplines by Joy Umenhofer ~ Critical Drills for Skill Development & Challenging Skills to Coach
Item Number: 2451
Critical Drills for Skill Development demonstrates the correlation and importance of trampoline basics, such as foot placement to enhance power, height, and control in bouncing. As well as position jumps, stomach drop and back drop to the aid development of more difficult skills. Instruction on most efficient, quick, and mechanically sound ways to teach front and back twisting up through multiple somersaults with and without twist. These skills, drills, and progressions contain critical concepts on flipping and twisting to teach at the beginning level and are imperative for future training growth. Building a strong foundation of air awareness and understanding of each quarter of rotation and twist assists both the athlete and the coach to safely progress toward double and triple somersaults with confidence. Beginning these drills at the earliest stage of development will lead to solid skill acquisition and confidence in the athlete later on. Good for both trampoline and tumbling and artistic gymnastics.
Challenging Skills to Coach provides progressions and spotting techniques for the cody and 1 & 3/4 Front to assist the coach’s success of instructing athletes. Both of these skills are critical in developing higher level athletes in both artistic gymnastics and trampoline and tumbling, however, sometimes overlooked due to the challenge of teaching.
Basic Skill Progressions is an extra feature with a few very basics of forward, backward, and twisting.
