Healthy Gymnastics Tips
Posted by IGA – December 31, 1969
Here are a few healthy tips to make for a better gymnastics practice...
1. Wait until after practice for dinner; a full meal beforehand weighs your gymnast down and hinders his/her movement
2. Give your child a healthy snack before practice. Examples: fruit, trail mix, carrot sticks, peanut butter crackers, or applesauce
3. Avoid soda before practice; the carbonation can cause discomfort while working out
4. Encourage your child to drink plenty of water throughout the day and after practice to stay hydrated and healthy
