is a sport involving the performance of exercises requiring flexibility,
balance and control. Competitive
artistic gymnastics is the best known of the gymnastic events. It typically
involves the women's events of vault, uneven bars, balance beam, and floor
exercise. Men's events are floor exercise, pommel horse, still rings, vault,
parallel bars and the high bar. Gymnastics evolved from exercises used by the
ancient Greeks that included skills for mounting and dismounting a horse, and
from circus performance skills.
A beginning gymnast's dream: doing flips. This is where you'll really start to feel like you're making progress. Start doing them with a spotter and in your gym, and once you get comfortable you can start busting them out at parties and on the stage
Gymnastics can be the most fun thing in the world and it's good exercise. It isn't really a sport you can teach yourself. You get to learn all kinds of tricks and even compete with others once you get more advanced! Although there will be immense training required to learn the techniques and the necessary skills from a professional treainer who will guide you to avoid injuries as well.
