A Tip For Today
We are starting week 3 of gymnastics training.  By taking everyone back to the basics of set up and body control, we are hoping to achieve a few goals for everyone.  The first goal is to improve you kinesthetic awareness, which is your body's understanding of where it is in space.  Next, we want everyone to improve at their kipping movements which means, you all have to improve in your strict movements.  If you cannot do a strict pull ups, kipping only increases your changes of injury.  The more strict pull ups you can do, the more kipping pull ups you can do.  However, that does not transfer in the opposite direction.  Always focus on your basics, build a strong foundation, and the pieces will fall into place.
