<![CDATA[As of last Friday, we are now posting skills challenges and skills workouts in open-gym sessions. [caption id="attachment_3503" align="alignright" width="300" caption="Your position might not look like this - but it could with practice! Thanks to Vanessa for the gymnastics lessons."][/caption] It is not mandatory that you do these challenges or workouts, but we’re suggesting them to help you focus your open-gym sessions. They will contain movements and drills we think you should work on for a few minutes. Challenges will be short and sweet tests such as max L-sits, max sets of double-unders, handstand holds and so on. They are designed to expose you to new or challenging movements. Don’t worry if you can’t do some of the movements – just talk to your coach and try a progression that will help you get closer to that movement. For example, if you can’t walk on your hands, try a few walk walks instead. Can’t do a ring support yet? To the parallel bars! There’s value in trying the drills even if you can hold a position for only 1 second. The skill WODs will also be fairly short and will involve fun combinations of movements most of us need to work on. There will be some prizes as well – not just for best time but for best positions and best form. Pineapple, anyone? Check the right side of the whiteboard for new challenges in open-gym slots, then try them and post your results.
