Gymnastics

Welcome to our new video series, Virtuosity, featuring gymnastics expert Coach Dusty Hyland. Virtuosity, in gymnastics, means going above and beyond - exceptional movement, performance, and position. Dusty's videos will teach gymnastic movements for fitness and CrossFit, focusing on progressions and the concept of virtuosity.

 

Today's video is the third in a series that will build you up to the muscle-up.

 

 

This week the focus is the "tight arch." Most people know a broken version of this referred to as a superman. Three things need to be worked on to improve this movement:

 

  1. Strength
  2. Mobility
  3. Coordination

 

Improving your technique on this exercise will help you build flexibility and joint stability. It will also help you in your general and athletic movement.
