Stretching Warmup

Stretching Warmup Exercises

Katrina and Sloane join their gymnast friends Cameron and Melissa at the Burlington BG’s Gymnastics Club.  With the help of Dennis, head coach for trampoline and tumbling, we go through several stretches you can do as a warm up.  These stretches are best done at the beginning and the end of any workout.

We do stretches that work major muscle groups including ones in your shoulders/arms; back and waist; legs and ankles.  Hold the stretches for 30 seconds to 1 minute each. 

Coach Don shows us how to safely spot a back walkover. If you are learning how to do your back walkover or back handspring, you should have someone to help spot you so you do not get injured.

Proper stretching prepares your muscles to dance, exercise, do cheerleading, gymnastics or other sports. 

If your muscles are properly warmed up and stretched, they will be less prone to injury and will work better.  Remember to stretch both sides equally – so any stretches you do on the right side should be repeated on the left side.

Hope you like the stretches we chose – but you can add your own in to keep your warm up routine fresh and fun!
