“These (Gymnastics) improvements are not always as obvious as a 10-lb. snatch PR, and gymnastics training is often frustrating because some skills seem so difficult as to be impossible. But small improvements provide a subtle yet rock-solid foundation for every aspect of your training, and there’s value in using appropriate progressions and spotters to work toward difficult skills. Even if you never achieve a planche or lever, working on these skills can provide dramatic increases in strength, control and body awareness—and with enough effort, dedication and consistency you might indeed find yourself in your first planche.”
