If you follow our YouTube Channel, you would know that I have been doing gymnastics the last 3 months. This is something I have always wanted to do. In this blog I want to bring to you what it is like as a beginner.
One of the things during my time starting on the bars is my hands have turned into dad hands. What this is, is hard skin on the palm of my hands.
At the moment I am not swinging on the bars, but I am doing back hip circles. This movement is to be able to get onto bars and to teach us to swing.
As a beginner we are not doing cartwheels yet, but that is where I would love to be. At the moment we are learning how to bunny hop on to the beam and being able to jump off the end.
This is the reason I love gymnastics and the reason I hope one day I can compete.
