Introducing Glides

Hi Liz here sharing with you one of my favorite simple bars stations! It’s easy enough do be done independently and is fun!

It’s a great way to introduce a glide swing and practice regrasping the bar. The stability ball also teaches young gymnasts to be aware of their core muscles (you see in the video how the ball starts to roll from side to side as her core relaxes). Using a scooter is a nice modification too for younger ages/levels!

Does anyone have any other fun drills for teaching a glide? Please reply to share!
