    I am a level 6 gymnast

    and I honestly love it with all my heart. But I have a problem, I'm scared of everything! I get mental blocks on almost every skill I do and I think too much and have trouble going for new skills. I try so hard to push myself out of my comfort zone but it's so difficult for me...

    Kind Of Back In The Gym

    Last week I returned to the gym for real, but it was mostly a lot of stretching and exercises. I warmed up to some of the harder skills with my coach's supervision, like the back tuck, round-off backhand spring, front tuck, etc. and then moved on to bars, minus the dismount. It...

    Occasionally

    Sometimes I do it with my friend Anna. But to tell you the truth, I'm not good at gymnastics at all. I'm bad at doing flips, my large breasts weight me down, and my body in general is too thick.Anna is short and slim with some muscles, and an expert.
