Young boys often train for strength moves on practice bars in the gym and young girls practice and compete whole routines on them.
Many sets of practice bars are perfect for a basement practice area – some are low to the ground so the gymnast, if they do falter, will only fall a few inches to a crash mat (if at all) and getting into and out of practice positions is so much easier.
Practice bars are made out of many different materials, from wood to plastic and most resemble push up bars that adults often use.
Young gymnasts can practice their hand placements as well as developing the muscles needed to hold themselves upright on the bars or in a tuck position (working just about every muscle in the body!).
