Quick Overview

Flying high, flipping and re-catching the bar is simply spectacular and a goal for every upper level aspiring gymnast. This video covers the detailed training information needed to make that goal a reality. John Geddert covers the major releases here, the Jaeger, Tcatchev, Gienger, Hindorf and Khorkina. Learning to land safely is the major theme behind John Geddert’s release philosophy. If the athlete is confident that they can survive a missed attempt, they are more likely to be confident and aggressive. Plenty of drills and progressions are demonstrated here.
