Mary Lee Tracy who coaches at Cincinnati Gymnastics (Junior Champion Lexie Preissman and Amelia Hundley) posts some of the best coaching and conditioning videos on her YouTube channel, found here.

Circuit training is a great way to build up endurance and teaches the gymnast to perform skills even when they are tired. It is also fun for the gymnasts participating!

Gymnasts can be conditioned to improve their body tension. This improves the overall look of their gymnastics on all apparatus. I like the use of leg weights in these drills to help build muscle.
